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 has much better longevity. But Bure was the better goal scorer.
It's so simple when you completely ignore GP and ENG, eh? Why go the extra mile, even when I've given it to you.
