Such large sample sizes! Certainly 123 games of best on best is a far better tool to evaluate these four players than 4680 NHL regular season games, and 686 NHL playoff games.
Looks like you used the 1991 Canada Cup in Fedorov's samples. Not every Canada Cup was a best-on-best tournament, just like not every Olympics was a best-on-best torunament (eg. the 94 Olympics where most NHLers sat out). The 1991 Canada Cup was not best-on-best as the teams from the Czech Rep and especially the USSR did not have most of their best players available.

That puts Fedorov at:
