True. I think memory is one of the strongest things here. Selanne had his peak years so little time a go that there are a lot of people who remember him playing and how he was regarded at that time. I don't remember him being the top-dog never. But he was definitely on the next tier after Jagr/Lemieux.
Where to put him is debatable but it is not outrageous to make a claim that he was top-5 forward for 3 years. 5 is stretching it, i took it too far admit. But for 96-99 he was definitely on the top tier of forwards.
