I'm must admit I'm surprised MoS...especially since besides Avs fans, Canucks fans seem to have the biggest soft spot for Burnaby Joe.

I will say one thing that has always stuck in my mind. Right before beating Florida in '96, the Panthers coach (who was it then? Can't remember...) was interviewed and asked which player he considered the most dangerous and important to contain on Colorado. I think he was angling for a Sakic slant, but the Panthers coach said Forsberg. Keep in mind, this was at the height of Sakic's Conn Smythe run, which was one of the best playoff point streaks in history.

Not that that should make the case either way, but just an interesting tidbit.
