I looked at Selanne's entire career. I've argued that Selanne had the better career overall, but it's close because Modano was a bit better pre-lockout while Selanne was clearly better post-lockout.



No, you misunderstood. I've argued that, from 1993 to 2004, Modano's significant advantages in defensive play and playoff performances -- which nobody here has even debated -- more than offsets Selanne's small advantage in scoring (5 points per year).

Somehow you still dont understand... I dont really know what else to do, but repeat: including 01-04 makes their scoring in 92-01 look alot closer than it really was.

Lehtinen is one of the greatest defensive forwards of all-time. Is it a bad thing that Modano learned from one of the best?
No, I´m saying that one of the best defensive forwards of all-time made him look alot better defensively and gave him more liberties.
