And no, I am not saying Forsberg is anywhere near Mario, I'm comparing the injury arguement.
You mean "Peak" not Prime.

Sakic's prime is a large step ahead of Forsberg's because it was 15 years long and almost always healthy

His peak is almost equal.

In Sakic's peak Regular season year, he won a Hart, Pearson, Would have won an Art Ross if not For Lemieux's return(Jagr had 44 points in 38 games from October through December. He finished with 77 points in his final 43 games after Mario came back.) and he was Runner up for the Selke(Forsberg never finished higher than 4th for the Selke)

In Sakic's peak Playoff he was the undisputed MVP with 18 goals and 34 points in 22 games.

I do think Forsberg has a very slight peak edge, but certainly not a large one when you take a good look at Sakic's peak


Why is it I am taking both sides of the argument?

Mostly because I do not like seeing either player demeaned.
