If I remember correctly Forsberg had 10 points against Japan not sure about the rest and he had 4 points against Canada.
Esa Keskinen-Mikko Makela-Esa Tikkanen should be mentioned aswell I think,
It was also in an era where hookings and holdings were a part of the game. I know the highlights against Czechs and Canada are somewhere on youtube. Forsberg had a stick around his waist or a hand on his jersey all game long. It was ridiculous.
Also agree a bit with the guy who said it wasn't necessarily the line, it was Forsberg. Forsberg had almost half of the points. Although it's possible the other great lines had a similar breakdown.
