Selanne evolved from an iffy to serviceable to reasonable defensive player. Dionne never progressed defensively - a definite liability his last 5-6 seasons.
While this is true, all players must play defensively in today's NHL and it wasn't true in the 80's so people need to take it with a grain of salt.
