I calculated Adjusted Goals Created Above Replacement Value.
This data:

A) used adjusted points at 6.00 GPG
B) was calculated as of the end of last season
C) used RV of .20 adjusted GCPG (e.g, this could be 16.4 adjusted goals and ~ 28.7 adjusted assists per season... so a player whose goal/assist ratio matched that of the league would have roughly 45 adjusted points/82 games)
D) used what I consider the "standard" GC formula of: GC = .5 [ G + (A * GPA) ] where GPA is league goals per assist for that season

Adjusted GC Above Replacement Value (RV of .20)
1 Gretzky 589
2 Howe 505
3 Jagr 402
4 Lemieux 398
5 Esposito 358
6 Sakic 347
7 Beliveau 318
8 Selanne 317
9 Dionne 313
10 RichardM 311
11 Yzerman 309
12 HullBo 306
13 HullBr 300
14 Mikita 294
15 Messier 286

The effects of this season may help illustrate how this is not simply a "compiling" stat. Selanne's current season shouldn't affect his total much. At this point, he might have actually lost ~1 GCARV. Meanwhile, Jagr has likely gained ~8-9 GCARV to this point. Only because Jagr is still playing at a very high level is he substantially increasing his GCARV, not simply by playing more games.
