Forsberg doesn't get as much recognition because he was injured quite often, not to mention playing in the west most of his career.

I mean, even Lemieux played 200 more games than him.
Peter Forsberg scored 30 goals twice playing on a completely stacked team. He was a great player, but nowhere close to the best ever, or one of the best ever for that matter.

Way overrated, and he is one of my favorite players, but there were many better players, especially offensively and with better hands.
