The Anaheim Ducks, fresh off of yet another considerable playoff run, will wait patiently for the status of veterans Scott Niedermayer and Teemu Selanne who, at 35 and 38 respectively, both face possible retirement.

As the Ducks continue to develop with elite level forwards Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry and Bobby Ryan, the need for the vets is lessened but still quite welcome. The Ducks have been fortunate to have enjoyed three significant postseason runs in the past four seasons, thanks largely in part to their veterans and ever-improving young core.

Both Selanne and Niedermayer have previously mentioned interest in playing in the 2010 Olympic Games which would carry over well into the 2009-10 NHL season.
