I realize a quick scan of hockey-reference.com shows 3 first place goals finishes for both, but look at the margins:

Bure 1994: +3 over Brett Hull.
Bure 2000: +14 over Owen Nolan.
Bure 2001: +5 over Joe Sakic.

Selanne 1993: Tied with Alexander Mogilny
Selanne 1998: Tied with Peter Bondra (and 1 goal ahead of Bure)
Selanne 1999: +3 over a 3 way tie of Yashin/Amonte/Jagr

Selanne was a better playmaker than Bure (and therefore, you might be able to argue he was a better overall offensive player, though I think that one is a tossup). He has much better longevity. But Bure was the better goal scorer.
