I'd probably have both Peca and Lehtinen in a second tier with about 10 or so other names, just under the 4 names I gave above.
Lehtinen was far above Peca. Peca was among the best for about two years. Lehtinen was among the league's elite defensive forwards for about a decade.

John Madden belongs in this discussion.

If you're bringing up Peca, you might as well add in Craig Conroy, Dallas Drake, Ryan Kesler, Patrice Bergeron, Mike Richards, Manny Malhotra, David Backes, Dirk Graham, Troy Murray, Jari Kurri, Doug Jarvis, Steve Kasper, Joel Otto, Ron Francis, Doug Gilmour, Kirk Muller, Vincent Damphousse, Kris Draper, Kirk Maltby, Craig MacTavish, and Mike Krushelnyski. To name a few.
