I think Yzerman tends to be overrated, at least in the media, relative to Fedorov.

THN's best 60 since '67 had them 54 spots apart (and that's just since expansion), due to Yzerman's lofty #6 rating (say what?) and Fedorov slipping in at #60.

However, there were a couple polls on HoH a few years ago limited to forwards and #13 & #21 in the poll of NHL forwards since WWII and #15 & #30 of NHL all-time forwards. That's more how I would rank them, which since forwards are half of all players, might equate to ~16 and ~30 spot differences, respectively. That seems about right to me.
