In a blog post made today on the Finnish site MTV3.fi (translated a little messily here via Google Translate), Anaheim Ducks star Teemu Selanne is voicing his dissent over the way Gary Bettman and NHL team owners are handling the NHL lockout. In particular, he calls out owner Craig Leipold of the Minnesota Wild.

We have some highlights from the post below, but we certainly reccomend checking out the full post as linked above (and forgive the translation, it was initially written in Finnish).

Selanne scores lockout knockout as mini-battles brew


The Finnish Flash weighed in on the lockout on his blog Monday and fired a few shots in commissioner Gary Bettman's direction. Anaheim Ducks winger Teemu Selanne, 42, the oldest player in the league, can't believe he's involved in the third work stoppage of his career. "(Bettman) is certainly the NHL's most hated person," Selanne said in a translated version. "He makes $8 million a year. Would Mr. Bettman be willing to give up his salary and give part of it to these "poor" teams? Hmm ... interesting question."

The item was titled: "What gives, Gary Bettman?"
