Take THAT Mr. Doomsday

J Status


Teemu Selanne


The Anaheim Ducks just gave Status a report of their own. Having read last week’s column, they “quacked” up the intensity with a four game winning streak.


Call it the Teemu effect. His returned has apparently inspired this team to another streak just as the return of Niedermayer had done a few weeks prior. This time, with their biggest gun back, it looks like they can sustain it. Even though they’ve still played as many games as anyone in the Western Conference, eight points in a week makes a world of difference for their chances. Selanne also contributed to the revolt against another J Status article of the past… New Year Revolutions
