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.
Peca's Selke record says otherwise: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 5, 5

For comparison, here is Lehtinen's: 1, 1, 1, 2, 3, 3, 6, 6

Lehtinen's is definitely better, but they aren't all that far apart. I'd be surprised if any of those guys you listed had a better record than Peca, and most probably aren't close at all.
