I could list 50 or close to it players that were better or at least arguably better than Selanne. I can't believe how overrated he is if people think he's close to top 10.
I'm not thinking Selänne is a top 10 forward, but get out of here! Lafleur is the only one on that list that is better and it is not a big difference. This is not only about NHL, also about international play. This is also about career, not only peak or prime. I think Selänne is definitely in top 20, if not top 15.
