I think it's fair game to mention Niedermayer (though after Selanne's 2005-06 without Pronger, I don't think we can give Pronger much offensive credit for Selanne's 2006-07 - even though Pronger was the best player on the team). I just don't see why he said Getzlaf/Perry and not McDonald though (other than a visceral response to the marquee names that they have since become). McDonald was Selanne's center, and he had two really good seasons with Selanne.
