peak vs. peak, it's very close. i'd go with bourque because the nature of the position is such that a defenseman controls the flow of the game more (as has been stated above).

i'd note also that both played on teams with some good pieces, but which shouldn't have been true contenders and bourque took his teams further.

prime vs. prime, you have to go with bourque because he had more all-time great seasons, as well as being more consistently great (basically his entire career). and the fact that bourque still has more assists than jagr is also worth pointing out.
