Gretzky
Lemieux
Messier
Beliveau
Mikita
Esposito
Clarke
Sakic
Yzerman
Trottier
Dionne
Richard
Forsberg
Crosby

On top of my head should all be "no brainers" ahead of Fedorov. That is not even touching the really old guys.
In no universe (that doesn't significantly weight Cup-counting) should Henri Richard rank above Sergei Fedorov. None.

I rank Fedorov over Forsberg, though not by much. And I have Crosby a step behind that; he needs to do a bit more to move up and is certainly well on his way to doing that.

Should all be ahead of Selanne. Maybe he could be in discussion with Kurri/Hull and that would slot him around 10.

Center is a lot deeper position than RW is tough.
I have that exact group of eight players, plus Bathgate, ahead of Selanne.
