Just don't let it stress you. It's easy to make arguments (while not really backing them up) to suite your point of view and then say that very same point of view doesn't matter when someone else shows the weaknesses in that opinion.

First "Stars" said how Fedorov had no one to help him but then I brought up Bure (who was tearing up the 1998 Olympics and Yashin and such) he didn't bother to respond.

At the end of the day we are all entitled to our opinion but the difference between an intelligent conversation and a pointless argument is basically being able to accept failure when it happens. Most of us have learned this, a select few choose to turn in circles and use derogatory language to try and shoot down an argument that is in fact much stronger than theirs.

Fedorov was a great player, so was Forsberg and so was Jagr but Fedorov at his very best is nowhere near the player some are claiming he was.

He's top 50 at best. Forsberg is top 40-35. Jagr is top 15-9.

Both Forsberg and Jagr won more than Fedorov and better than Fedorov on every level, juniors, NHL regular season, Stanley Cups, World Championships, Olympics...
