Malkin is at least thus far NOT head and shoulders above Forsberg offensively, just being able to play more games per season and Peter was a more complete player. Lets not forget that Jagr was ever present stealing Art Rosses at least partly(OK very partly) becouse of games played. Jagr was a beast.
For sure Ovechkin due to his many goals at times was better offensively than Forsberg, but not near him defensively.
Crosby as i said has during the upcoming years every opportunity to separate himself from Foppa and in fact was better then him the last couple of years.
Ok, 94-95 through 03-04
Joe Sakic scored 327 goals in the regular season.
Peter Forsberg scored 216 goale in the regular season.
That is a difference of 111 goals.
Malkin, Ovechkin and Crosby have all scored 50 goals. Crosby and Malkin are as good of a playmaker as Forsberg. Ovechkin is(or rather was) a more physically intimidating player. Ovechkin scored more goals in in his first FOUR seasons (222) than Peter the Great did during his ENTIRE Colorado Avalache career.
Forsberg was a great player. Those three are generational players.
