Yeah ob post lockout Selanne kills Modano and has clearly had the better career. And while Modano has elite playoffs (Selanne never got the chance) Selanne is one of the best ever on big ice so. But before the lockout or during the late 90s it is close enough between the two that i would just have to decide on team need rather than determining who was better.
