It's all about players prime and how DOMINANT they were, amirite? Points total are completely meaningless
Yes because the era a player played in has no impact as to how his scoring totals will look like.
Dominance is relative to the era they played in.
Selanne isn't even close to being one of the most dominant players of all time. For example only a complete idiot would argue Ron Francis is top 10 or better than Beliveau, by your logic he is though. Selanne is an amazing player who belongs in the Hall of Fame, does that make him a top 10 player? No. Given the vast history of the NHL it doesn't even ensure him a spot in the top 50 forwards of all time, although i think he'd probably crack the top 50. That is no insult, nor is it paramouint to dismissing his terrific resurgance in his latter years.
