Will we ever see a Swedish player as good as prime Forsberg again?

The leafs were just never good enough to win a cup and its not easy to accomplish anything on a bad team.
And quiet? He strikes me as a very outgoing person, more so than Lidstrom and Alfie. Joe Sakic is considered one of the best captains of all time and he was a pretty quiet and calm guy.
Why mixing up his point production with his leadership skills? I simply don't get this.
Talking only points I believe he had his highest point production seasons before becoming the Captain of the Leafs.
Saying it again: I love Mats Sundin but I just don't think he was the perfect Captain for Toronto.
Joe Sakic is probably outspoken comparing to most Swedes but you have a point. ;-)
There will always be exceptions, of course there are calm quiet people who have good leadership skills.
