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.
yep some of the canuck fans here really love burnaby joe but....... he's an av and i hate them all the same :p

joe sakic is a fine player but my soft spot is always for the more talented, less-durable player. ie. the lemieux vs gretzky argument. its obvious lemieux is better right??? :p
