I can't agree. I think some of Dionne's "good" years look "very good" due to the era in which he played. I just don't see a lot of difference between the two, but if anything I think Selanne has more "quality" seasons.

I think these two and Thornton are like peas in a pod mostly, except they range from more of a goal-scorer (Selanne) to balanced (Dionne) to more of a playmaker (Thornton), and Thornton probably still has a few "good" years left. They're all elite scorers who played for a lot of mediocre teams, with very good ES (adjusted +/-) data, but haven't done a lot of damage in the playoffs.
