07:38 AM ET 08.08 | The clock is ticking, again, for Teemu Selanne and the Ducks -- which is nothing new these past few summers. The annual dance between continuing a storied career and embracing retirement is on. ... So far, Selanne and the Ducks have kept up their healthy relationship after marrying again in 2005. But a real question is emerging. Is that relationship about to end with him hanging them up or skating with a different team? Ducks general manager Bob Murray addressed the first part, saying the decision is up to the franchise icon. "He hasn't been ready to commit to playing," Murray said. "He's going to work out a little bit. I don't think he's 100 percent into it. As I've said, if he's not 100 percent into it, that just doesn't do it. That's where it is."

Seriously, if there's ONE player in the entire league that's earned the right to take his time with a decision it's Teemu.

Perhaps, but if Mats Sundin is his advisor, this could take a loooooooooong time

Well Murray even Selanne at 68% is better than half your roster.

The Ducks better put someone else on a fried beans diet, just in case.

Murray is just blowing smoke.

August 8, 2013  09:12 AM ET

He's going to work out a little bit.




Nice to see Teemu embracing the training regimen of hockey players of the 70s and 80s...

Don't forget Anaheim has the ultimate gasbag in the scouting department.

Maybe it was the short season last year, but the Selanne I saw in the playoffs has 2 years left easily.
