Found this gem on ESPN's insider via the LA Times.
"No. Scotty and I have been talking and he’s going to retire an Anaheim Duck. And that’s the way it’s going to be unless he tells me different. I have an agreement with Scotty and it’s my word. "We’ve talked about this. I see him staying here. Who knows, he might play next year." So says Bob Murray, Ducks GM
I really hope this is case with Scott, as well as Teemu. As we know GM's talk out their necks. Sort of like the GM giving the coach, the coup de grace, a vote of confidence.
It seems the team has been turning it around of late. I think give them some more time and hopefully they can make a late run and make the playoffs.
