In a thread about my favorite player, I consider that a compliment.

Selanne only saw two-and-a-half more minutes per game than Fedorov in 1998 (and less powerplay time), and only one minute more per game than Yzerman in 1999. I'm not seeing how it would be too jarring with a less-focused defensive matchup, especially with more passing options on the powerplay (which killed Selanne's production in 1998).

I'd give Yzerman that one.
