I'd take Modano, although both are highly rated in my mind. Modano was a guy you could build a team around, I never got that feeling from Selanne. Teemu was certainly the more dynamic of the two but Modano was a very good two way player through the dead puck era and he has no problem posting 80 points while being extremely dependable in his own end.

I like this poll, though, it's a very good comparison in terms of value, not so much role's, but in terms of value, I think both of these guy's hit similar peaks for what they provided. I'm just going on what I would have wanted for the Sabre's in the late 90s and early 2000's and that would have been Modano by a hair...not that we could have gotten either....
