Honestly, I still take Lindros. The only thing Forsberg did better than Lindros was pass. Lindros was a much better goal scorer, was great on faceoffs, they were probably equal defensively, fought, and while both were very physical, Lindros, to quote Jester, was evil just wanted to destroy people.
The difference was the supporting casts around them. At least part of that has to do with the trade itself (there was no cap though so no excuse for Clarke not to put the team around him) but they still had this guy there named Joe Sakic that took a lot of the focus away from Forsberg. (And some little guy named Roy)
Many people forget Lindros' GPG and PPG were up there in the top 4 all time in his prime. (before his brain became mush)
