In 97-98 when Kariya missed a ton of the season, Selanne's play, while his points were lower, hit a nice level of individual greatness.
Yes, they helped each other... and they needed help on that sad sack Ducks team. Kariya was still very good before Selanne arrived and had another very good season in 2003 without him. Selanne was elite in '93 & '96 (with injuries in between) and has some very good post-lockout seasons, despite his age.
