Top NHL goal-scorers since the lockout

This is really a setup post for when I decide to get off my lazy ass and write a Selanne-contemplating-retirement post, but this answers one specific question: since the NHL lockout two seasons ago, who has scored the most NHL goals (regular season + playoffs)? Here's the top 30 on that list, anyway:

I guess the key take-aways from this table is how rare it is that someone as old as Selanne and playing in the western conference scores so many goals for this stretch of time. I know his spot on this list is somewhat dependent on games played (Anaheim's postseason success), but even so--Selanne continues to produce despite his age and the games-played.

Look for me to say more about this in a follow-up post in the near future when I've got a little less liquor in me, but for now, know this: I could probably make this list down to the top 70 post-lockout goal-scorers before you'd find another guy who's even contemplating retirement right now.
