"Per 82 game" stats have little value since you don't win hockey games by pro-rating injured players' stats - only the results on the ice matter. My point was that Modano, due to his health and consistency, was likely ahead of Selanne between 1993 and 2004.
I'm saying that 93-04 is a stupid time period since it clearly favors Modano since Selanne was playing injured 01-04. Even if he wasn't 11 years as a time period would still be too long to make any relevant argument. Also why the hell would you leave out the 92-93 season?

Why are you saying that per 82gp stats have little value? Selanne played four games more during 92-01 so it actually gives Modano a slight advantage.
