Still locked in goals only i see. Obviously not aware of the dead puck era either.

Crosby and Malkin can score 50 AND score 60 assists. Forsbergs obviously could not score more than 30 in a regular season because he never did so. Ever.
Dont mix up Crosby and Malkin, that is a rule of thumb to go by. You'll see that when hockey is back if Crosby stays healthy. The 50 goals and 60 goals you talk about is like Forsbergs 35 goals and 75 assists he was capable of in 82 games during the dead puck era. You cant take one or two of Malkins best seasons and believe that i wont bring up Forsbergs bests. You see where adding his physical aspect and defensive prowess becomes pretty stellar here?

Sakic scored 111 more goals than Forsberg during their overlapping career. Actual goals. I don't care about projected, anticipated, could haves. I care about reality. Reality says Joe Sakic scored 111 more goals than Peter Forsberg. Therefore, Sakic outproduced Peter.

Penalizing a player for taking more shots?? IE creating offense?
Goals, goals, goals, as if a guy like Adam Oates did nothing during his Hall of Fame career.
