I absolutely hate the ducks. So much so, I refuse to spell ducks with a capital letter.
I would love to see Brian Hayward in a UFC cage match with Jon Bones Jones.
I would love to see them go 0-82-0 on the season.
But I have to admit............ I have a ton of respect and admiration for Teemu Selanne.
He is an amazing hockey player.
I wouldn't want him on the Kings, just because he's a tried and true duck, but as much as I try to hate that guy, I just can't. He is everything a hockey player should be. Talented, hard working, and has a ton of heart.

There's a saying: "Love the sinner, hate the sin".
So, maybe it's equivalent for sports is "Respect the player, hate the team".
Selanne may be a Duck, but he is one fantastic hockey player and has been his whole career. Certainly Hall of Fame worthy, and deserving of respect. If it helps, just youtube his goals from his Jets days.

Selanne is a certain Hall of Famer. One of my top ten favorite players of all time.

I personally do not hate the Ducks because they have done nothing to me. I actually like the fact that they are going to have a shot at the playoffs. Teemu is a great player and he has done great things for the Ducks organization and he is a class act.
I hope the Kings would have had a better season but the Ducks are peaking at the right time and they have a better shot than the Kings do at the playoffs because of their play of late. I would like one team from So-Cal make the playoffs so since the Kings are out, it is ok with me if the Ducks get in. With that being said, I am not a huge fan of all of their players on the team but it takes too much energy to hate someone especially in sports.

I will forever hate the Ducks. I do however, enjoy watching Selanne. He's consistantly year in and year out continued to be just an amazing player.
I do have to admit, for the Kings sake, I won't be sorry the day he decides to retire. It'll be the end of another sports great.
