I know that this has been totally beaten to death, but how can two guys who are have been consistent top 30 point getters among forwards? You would think that with 30 teams you would have 90 "first liners". Are you telling me that each NHL team only has 1 "first liner", or that some teams don't have any 1st liners?

2007/08: Henrik (26th), Daniel (28th)
2006/07: Daniel (19th), Henrik (25th)
2005/06: Henrik (38th), Daniel (44th)

Add in that they are well above average defensively, and they are 1st liners IMO. Granted that they might not be guys that "carry" their team, but not all 1st liners carry their respective teams either. IMO, not every 1st liner is a star player.
