Jagr in 01 scores at a slightly higher clip than Crosby but I would say that both Federov in 94 and Lindros in 97 are higher in the "dominate" category of play with their overall games.

Taking Sid (11), Lindros (97), Federov (94) and Jagr (01), Jagr sticks out as the guy with the least complete overall game of the 4.

You do have a point that the best player in the world tag is more complicated in the post healthy Lemieux era.
I thought you mean "dominant" in more absolute terms, rather than dominating the current competition. In that case, his 2011 half season was probably as dominant as any in recent memory. Some similar stretches may have been Malkin last year, Ovechkin in '08, Jagr in '06 and Forsberg in '03.
