07:33 AM ET 08.09 | If Teemu Selanne decides he has another year in him -- would he cross town? Not according to General Manager Dean Lombardi. In an e-mail to the Register on Thursday, Lombardi said the Kings have not talked to the free-agent winger and added that "we are filled now anyway" with regard to their roster. The Kings' salary cap situation also supports Lombardi's assertion as it relates to adding a player, particularly one of Selanne's stature. His club is about $87,000 over the cap according to CapGeek.com but it has until 48 hours before their season opener to get back under. The news of Selanne reportedly opening up the possibility of playing this season with another NHL team sent a long-distance tremor from Finland that rattled throughout Duckland.
