Way too much conjecture there to argue he beats out Fuhr.

Based on what exactly? He finished 7th in voting and Lemieux didn't place. Gretzky wasn't even a finalist. Messier, Bourque, and Hull (none of whom benefited from Wayne or Mario) all finished way ahead of Yzerman in voting. This is classic Yzerman fanboy mythology.
The year he didn't even get a 3rd place vote for the Hart? Come on now. And again, Lemieux didn't even place in the voting - how would his and Gretzky's absences allow Yzerman to jump Hull, Belfour, and Bourque? Let alone all the other players that got votes while he didn't.
and possibly wins 1993 as well.
Based on two 3rd place votes in a year Gretzky barely even played? Does he magically jump all of Gilmour, Lafontaine, Oates, Selanne, Turgeon, and Chelios? You are being ridiculous here and offering nothing of substance to support these wild assertions.
