Sundin - 1346 GP 564g-785a-1349 points
Alfredsson - 1113 GP 416g-666a-1082 points

Big edge there.

Playoffs:
Sundin - 82 points in 91 games
Alfredsson - 90 points in 111 games

More or less even.

Give an edge to Alfredsson in the defensive department but Sundin beats him in consistency, was a 2nd team all-star twice at center (compared to Alfie just once on the right wing). Both have the "face of a franchise" tag. Sundin has more seasons as an elite player as well.

Sweden performances:
Sundin - 39 points in 30 games
Alfredsson - 29 points in 28 games

All for top level tournaments. There is a noticeable edge for Sundin career wise. Certainly better longevity. At their peak is debatable but Alfredsson loses because he didn't sustain his level of play for as long.
