I'm not going to pretend like I saw any of them play, but Fedorov has that one season where he gets the Selke and the Hart as a Russian entering the NHL before they were thought to even really care about the SC. As far as I know, Yzerman never got the Hart, and Forsberg got only 1. You gotta give it to Sakic because of all these players he was for the longest time not only consistently offensively superior but also he played like a winner. But I think Fedorov has an argument in there for best peak, and really, you have to give it to players who can win the freaking Selke and the Hart. That's basically unprecedented since Bobby Clarke.
Long story short, I wish I got to see Fedorov play in his prime. Sadly all of my memories of Fedorov are basically of him at his worst. I wish he could have been the "Larionov" on those Washington teams!
