I'll post my numbers in case I made an error.

First I need the average goals per game in each season-
52/53=1006/210=4.79
97/98=5624/1230=4.57

Now I multiply the gs of each player by 6 and divide by the gpg in their respective seasons.

Selanne=68
Howe=61

Did I do that correctly?
The numbers for 1997-98 are wrong - the average goals per game should be 5.28.

So Selanne would have about 59 adjusted goals.

Not it makes a huge difference.
