At this pace I'm sure it's just a matter of time (six months, maybe a year) before someone here honestly believes he's better than Lemieux and Gretzky. So in the interest of providing some kind of balance to the universe, I'm going to have to rank Forsberg last out of the six players.

Sakic 1A / OV 1B

(Remember, it's all about balance.)
Over the past few years, Ive constantly read comments on how Forsberg is overrated on this board, when in fact its the other way around. Looking at the complete package, how can you list him last? "He didnt score goals!" - look up his playoff resume.

If I had to choose, why would I choose a one dimensional Stamkos over two of the most dominant players ever (jagr n forsberg)?
