As in the Näslund vs. Näslund I valued a conn smythe performance of one of the weakest harts to have ever been awarded in NHL history.
Markus Naslund's offensive peak is far beyond Mats'. It's not even close.

As for the Sedins vs the legendary Russians, no I don't put them on the same level as Mikhailov, Kharlamov or Makarov, obviously. (I don't know enough about Martinec to make a call on that one)

Though - and you might hate me even more for this - I do value pre-NHL Soviets higher than pre-NHL Swedes, for reasons that should be obvious.
