I said it is an argument for Forsberg in that debate. I didn't say that Forsberg is better than Sakic, and if I were to ever utter such a phrase, I would probably only do so on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays while saying the exact opposite on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. If there's a thread about Conn Smythes, I'll be in there all day talking about 1996. This thread asked about why Colorado didn't win as much as New Jersey and Detroit, and of the three elite players, that's on Sakic more than Forsberg. Marginally better performances from him - particularly in 1999 and 2000 and 2002 (the years they lost the WCF in 7 games) - put the Avalanche in the position for five rings.
