Seasons in Top Five in Scoring
Bure: 1993 (5), 1994 (1), 1998 (3), 2000 (1), 2001 (1)
Selanne: 1993 (1), 1997 (2), 1998 (1), 1999 (1), 2007 (3)

1993: Selanne, 73 Goals + 3 Empty Net Goals (84 Games)
1993: Bure, 59 Goals + 1 Empty Net Goal (83 Games)
1994: Bure, 56 Goals + 4 Empty Net Goals (76 Games)

1997: Selanne, 48 Goals + 3 Empty Net Goals (78 Games)
1998: Selanne, 50 Goals + 2 Empty Net Goals (73 Games)
1998: Bure, 48 Goals + 3 Empty Net Goals (82 Games)
1999: Selanne, 45 Goals + 2 Empty Net Goals (75 Games)
2000: Bure, 49 Goals + 9 Empty Net Goals (74 Games)
2001: Bure, 55 Goals + 4 Empty Net Goals (82 Games)

2007: Selanne, 47 Goals + 1 Empty Net Goal (82 Games)


I don't see any reason to say Bure was conclusively better at his peak.
