*grabs popcorn*
Modano during the the deadpuck era, 1997-2003 was better defensively than either of the avs stars and just as good as yzerman, this is based on watching him play all of those years, no explanation needed. He was as close to fedorov-gilmour as you'll get. A clear notch above sakic-forsberg.

Selke voting is based on how many points you score while being good defensively, unless you think 2001 sakic was actually better defensively than 97-2001 modano, lol.
