Forsberg is one of the absolute greatest to ever play the game and by any rational hockey fan, he should be ranked along with Lemieux and Gretzky. Perhaps with an * because of the injuries he sustained. He did not produce for as long but what he did produce is historic and scenes we won't experience any time soon. Forsberg is kind of like the Ronaldo (the real Ronaldo) of hockey.
His career was cut short but when he was in his prime, IT was an absolute beast and sadly, I don't expect to see such a dominant Swedish player in a long long time. For the sake of Tre Kronor and my own enjoyment, I hope I'm wrong of course.

Even the not so diehard hockey fan Zlatan said (in response to his general hobbies/interests)

"I like Forsberg, what a player!. If you've seen him, you've seen it all"
