08:21 AM ET 01.17 | After a lockout claimed much of what shapes up as his final season, Teemu Selanne's fire burns. Here's his reaction to the general consensus that the Anaheim Ducks won't be a contender, via the OC Register's Eric Stephens: "That can't be the only motivation. But hopefully we'll get [ticked] off here," Selanne said. Actually, there should be plenty of motivation to go around in Anaheim. Potential franchise-altering contract years from Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf could push the Ducks to exceed expectations or fall into an awkward rebuild (more on that here). Beyond that, a slow start could force Bobby Ryan to fight off another slew of trade rumors while Jonas Hiller tries to prove last season's health problems are behind him.

Bobby Ryan is coming home to play for the Flyers next season so it doesn't matter what he does in Anaheim this year.

Well, to be fair, chili twice in one week is kind of pushing it. Esp. during training camp.

I'm sure his roomate made that rule

I agree and it's not just the explosive gas but he looks like a giant Phil Mickelson robot also.

But Boston will still be better than NYR. NYR can trade for the entire Kings team, combine them with the current team and ship off the rest, and Boston will still be better.
