Selanne might have something to do with it. But I still believe that the main reason why we are starting forget is lack of hardware. Just two Lady Byng trophies and it's not like this award is valued by many. Also a Hart runner-up.
In the end:
No Art Ross
No great playoff performances
If I think about, then my picture of Kariya is something like this:
Elite offensive player, who scored a bunch of points for Anaheim. Went to powerhouse Colorado and flopped badly. Went to highest bidder (Nashville, St Louis). Retired without much noise.
So what's his legacy and achievements? Several regular seasons with high point totals. That's it.
If other people also remember him in similar way, then no wonder we are starting to forget.
