What are you basing that on exactly?
By that, then Forsberg would been runner up at least 2 times.
Both times when he won the playoffs in scoring without even playing the finals, it's not his fault the others on the team failed to deliver.

And if Forsberg hadn't played in the 2nd rond against the Kings in the 2000-01 playoffs the Avs wouldn't have gone any further. He was the leading scorer before the spleen accident, and against the Kings he had 8 points on the 12 goals Colorado scored in the first 6 games that series (He was also on the ice on 11 of them)

And most people seems to think that Forsberg's peak was the year he won the Hart.
I would say his peak was in the late 90's (~1997-99)
