Listen, I don't hold it against Selanne that he missed the playoffs that year, but why do you want to give him extra credit for playing on a bad team that didn't go anywhere?
I don't understand either why players get extra credit offensively on bad teams. Especially when they aren't defensively oriented teams playing a system that snuff out offense.
Selanne certainly didn't play on such teams under those conditions. His teams won and lost based on their top line players offensive games.
Yea he may not have been surrounded by a ton of talent. But the first unit wasn't lacking and they had one job to do. Which was to score goals. You don't get extra bonus points for that.
