Since 1993-94 (the first year that scoring really started to decline, but not straight up dead puck), here are the leading scorers:

1. Jagr 1433
2. Selanne 1273
3. Sakic 1169
4. Recchi 1131
5. Sundin 1100
6. Alfredsson 1082
7. Thornton 1078
8. Iginla 1073
9. Modano 1065
10. Lidstrom 1041
11. Tkachuk 1006
12. Whitney 990
13. Kariya 989
14. Kovalev 986
15. Shanahan 977

Alfredsson started in 1995-96, so this table includes missed seasons from multiple players.

I think most people have Tkachuk, Whitney, and Kovalev out and Kariya is borderline. The question will be whether Alfredsson is going to be the highest regular season scorer of his era not to be enshrined. Given his intangibles and his face of the franchise status, I really think he should get in. If he played in the 1970s or 1980s, he'd probably be considered an easy lock as his stats would have placed him high among the all-time career scorers. But scoring has gone down since then.
