Panthers' Salei, Ducks happy with deal // MiamiHerald.com


During the nine seasons Ruslan Salei spent with the Anaheim Ducks, the team never won a division title and Salei never scored more than 19 points.

Thirty-two games after the veteran defenseman left Anaheim as an unrestricted free agent, however, the Ducks come into BankAtlantic Center tonight with the NHL's best record and Salei comes in with a career-high 20 points.

''I guess it's working out for us,'' Salei said of both he and his former teammates. ``As far as my personal stats, yes. But as the far the team stats I'm not happy with that. And that's the most important.''

The Ducks, who entered the NHL with the Panthers as expansion teams in 1993-94, were just 3 years old when they picked Salei ninth overall in the 1996 entry draft. And until this season, they were the only NHL team he knew. So for Salei, that makes tonight's game, the only scheduled meeting between the teams this season, a big one.

''It is going to be special,'' he admitted. ``It's not like any other game. It's the first time I'll be playing against my old teammates.

``I'll try to do my best to beat them. They're the best team in the league right now, and it's going to be a tough game.''
