Ok, I'll bite. In what years was RW stronger than a field of centers containing most or all of Yzerman, Fedorov, Sakic, Forsberg, Lemieux, Gretzky, Messier, Lindros, Francis, Yashin, Modano, Sundin?

Also please remember that it's a year Selanne needs to end up in the top five forwards.

I would personally slot Selanne among the top five FORWARDS in 1992-93, 1997-98, and 1998-99. 1997-98 is the only one of those three I think even comes close to fitting your argument, with strong seasons from Bure and Bondra in addition to Jagr and Selanne among top players. But the top centers were still better.
