Earlier in June, NHL.com named Corey Perry the best player to ever be selected 28th in the NHL Entry Draft. Later on in their series examining the best selections in draft history, they came to #10 and went unanimously with Teemu Selanne by the Winnipeg Jets. You know, back in 1988. It’s still shocking that he’s still playing. All he has done since being selected by the Jets back then is score 675 goals and register 775 assists for 1,430 points. We all love Teemu Selanne and we all know he’s a hall of famer. And now we’re playing the waiting game yet again with Selanne. Will he retire? Will he grace us with yet another NHL season? We’re just going to have to wait.
