If you're talking single year peak, then I think Ovechkin's 2007-08 might match Fedorov's 1993-94, but I don't think it beats it. If you are talking a string of several seasons, then I think Ovechkin has the best peak and only injuries have kept Malkin's from being better.

Was there a better player than Makarov for the period between 80-89 or 81-90, other than Wayne, not named Makarov? I don't think so.
I agree with this. I think there's a very good case that Makarov was actually a better player than Mike Bossy, though we'll never know for sure.
