He WAS a good playoff performer (better than Yzerman, better than Shanahan). No one is saying he wasn't. He just wasn't some world-beater like the way people often claim, and certainly not to the extent to overcome the difference in the comparison of Selanne's 2nd-7th best seasons and Fedorov's 2nd-7th best seasons.

Yes he did - as much as any other Red Wing.
Mostly Shanahan after they picked him up, but then again, if he was playing against teams' top checking lines, who was he simultaneously shutting down defensively?
