I think Jagr vs. Richard would be a more interesting comparison.

Rating player that are near the end of their career more favourable (regardless whether they've added something to their resumee or not). Obversed in the Selanne vs. Kurri case for example.

By adding just one >PPG season opinion went from in favour of Kurri's to heavily in favour of Selanne.
Does that mean that Selanne's career in 2009 was underrated and people have trouble to look at active players objectively ignoring projections?
For the ignoring projections part you might look at Alex Ovechkin.
