No.

Just looking at the best forward from each playoff year, and not considering Gretzky in 93, Gilmour's 93 is clearly bested by Lemieux's 91 and 92, Bure in 94, and Sakic in 1996. Fedorov in 95 and 97, Yzerman in 98, and Forsberg in 99 are less clear as to who was better.

But your statement might be better as "His 1993 playoff run with Toronto was one of the best runs by any forward in the 1990s." Not nearly as dramatic or epic sounding... but far more accurate.
