If the argument is prime, then Sakic has a clear margin of victory. peak is another matter, and is very close between him and Forsberg
Either way I go with Joe. Funny thing is that their "peak" years were the same year. And Joe outscored Forsberg. Joe scored 51g 69a 120p to Forsbergs 30g 86a 116p. Forsberg was flashier, more physical and better playmaker. Joe was the better leader and a lot better goal scorer. Both were superstars and great players.

Sometimes I think Forsberg is overrated. When people say that "in his prime he was the best player in the world" I just don't see that at all. In my opinion the best player in the world has a higher then 30g in a season for a career high.
