Sundin is still ahead when you only look at the tournaments both played in: 1996 World Cup, 1998 Olympics, 2002 Olympics, 2004 World Cup and 2006 Olympics. Sundin: 32 points in 24 games. Alfredsson: 26 points in 24 games.

And if we forget about absolute scoring numbers and compare the players relative to their peers, then Sundin's edge is overwhelming: he was an all-star in 1991, 1996 and 2002. That's among the most impressive international records ever.
