I see Kelly as an all time great, won the first Norris and probably shouldve won 3 before that. A bunch of 1st team all stars, the number 1 dman on the greatest red wings teams ever ssembled and the versatility to play forward when his team needed him.
Fedorov had the versatility and a VERY high peak, but for the most part I see him as a consistent 65 point center that brought it in playoffs and
coasted quite a bit through the season (part of the reason he got put on D).
What do you think?
Where did you get this information? Fedorov won a Selke and you don't win one by punching a time card. As for Fedorov's offensive prowess, back in 1996 when the Wings won 62 games TSN did a comparison between this team and the 77 Habs. They matched up Fedorov with Lafleur and gave Sergei the edge. Bit of a stretch in my opinion, but this shows how highly regarded he was at the time. As for his time on defense, I understood it to be about his versatility, not about his lack of effort. He was a class act in my opinion.
