Details in regards to Jokerit's attempts to lure forward Teemu Selanne to the KHL for the 2014-15 season emerged Thursday morning, with the club's Russian owners reportedly offering both big bucks and an interesting work schedule.

Jokerit co-owner Roman Rotenberg reiterated to Finnish media outlet Ilta-Sanomat that it is "really important" to secure the 44-year-old's services, emphasizing the club's "readiness to wait for the decision" (via Google translate).

If Selanne chooses the home game option, it may be time to change "Teemu Forever" to "Part-time Teemu."
