Sakic is the BPA.

The other three are all good choices depending on team need. Oates is the best playmaker and faceoff man, and was always solid defensively; probably better career-wise than Sakic who took ten years of NHL hockey to start playing a solid defensive game.

Bure has definite advantages; if you have no go-to goal scorer, Bure is a great pick because while Sakic could put them in, Bure WOULD put them in. Career average per-82? 51 goals. Only Lalonde, Malone, Bossy, and Lemieux have posted better while playing at least 20 games in their careers.

Sundin's best advantage is that he was harder to get off of the puck than Sakic, while only giving up a little bit of offense. Defense is the big difference. On a strong team that's good defensively, Sundin or Bure might be a better bet.
