From one future Hockey Hall of Famer to another, Teemu Selanne offered his two cents about Jaromir Jagr’s All-Star vote tweet, which created a funny exchange between the two legends.
By Patrick Comia
Yesterday, we wrote about the ageless wonder Jaromir Jagr sitting out of this year’s All-Star Game.
If you missed his tweet from his account, @68Jagr:
Fans-I appreciate your votes for All-Star game, but 3 on 3 would kill me,and i don't want to die yet:)Thank you for understanding. Too old:)

Well another hockey legend and soon to be immortalized in the Hockey Hall of Fame Teemu Selanne responded by supporting #68 and gave some fellow elder statesman advice:
@68Jagr I vote you bud! You are not that old yet! And you are SO much smarter than this days kids anyway!!! Keep it rolling my friend!?????

This prompted a response that was too good to ignore:
@TeemuSel8nne :))) I do it for you, but if they decide, it's not good and change it again in 2026 to play 2 on 2-i'm not going:) too old 54

How can you not love this game with personalities such as these?
