it's not a bold statement, Selšnne's and Bure's peaks and primes are very similar, the only thing Selšnne really has an advantage on is longevity because he was more long time fortunate with his injuries, but longevity alone doesn't make you a better player

i think what it comes down to between Selšnne and Bure is personal preferences, personally i prefer Bure because i think he was the slightly better game breaker and better in the playoffs, i also think he was the better stickhandler and a bit more versatile, plus he was more fun to watch

Selšnne also never sat out half a season because of money
this has nothing to do with how good a hockey player someone is but Bure didn't sit out because of money, he did because he held a grudge against the management
