I would've taken Recchi over Selanne in 2000. Selanne was in the beginning stages of (what was to me, at least) an obvious decline. A healthy Selanne would've scored a lot more than 33 Goals in a full season. Whether or not he still qualifies as being a top ten player at that point is debatable, but Recchi was almost certainly better.
