But the argument can be made that Sundin had the better career. Consistency and longevity have to count for something.

Game 7 overtime, give me Bure 10 times out of 10. Starting a franchise from scratch, give me Sundin to build around.

Gun to my head, I pick Bure as the better player and I think that is obvious, but I'll take Sundin for the long haul. In my personal opinion, this matchup is really quite close.
