Vulgar Opinions: Coming Around On Teemu Selänne (NSFW)

08/30/13

If you follow me on Twitter, it’s probably no secret that I’ve long hated Teemu Selänne (check that umlaut bitches), not because there’s anything wrong with him as a person, but because sportswriters across the country won’t stop talking about how awesome he is.

This has been pretty much identical to my opinion about Pavel Datsyuk, who maybe after the millionth time of being called the most underrated superstar in the NHL became just ‘rated.’  And then Datsyuk went ahead and proved himself to be perhaps the most underrated scumbag in the NHL turning a blind eye to the suffering of many of his Russian compatriots.  Who had “Sean Avery is a better person than Pavel Datsyuk” in the what the fuck pool?  Anyone?

Since the universe handed me a great cosmic auger to further plumb the depths of my hatred for Datsyuk and his equally scummy franchise I figured it made perfect sense to go the other way on Selänne and forgive him for the transgression of being an eminently likable human being.  Yay Teemu!

    I too feel the same way about Teemu Selanne. You made some great points and I was lucky to read this.
