Its kinda like Sakic/Crosby/Stammer have better vision and playmaking, but the wingers have a huge physical asset in their favor.
Forsberg's and Jagr's vision were equal if not better than Crosby's in their primes. BTW Forsberg was a natural center although he did play some Wing sometimes.

Jagr was the better overall player of the bunch.
