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?

Goals, goals, goals, as if a guy like Adam Oates did nothing during his Hall of Fame career.
Adam Oates wasn't even the best player on his team in his prime, let alone in the running for best player in the world.

dead puck era: 02-03 5.309
Now: 11-12: 5.320

Clearly Forsberg would hit 50 every season in the "nuuw" NHL.

I love the guy, but you take any player who played the majority of his career in his 20's and you'll get the same argument.

Forsberg was fantastic, just not at the level of Crosby, Malkin or Ovechkin.
