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.
I think you're really going into semantics now. That Malkin season was slightly better than Forsbergs best per game, amongst at least three other Peters Hart Trophy-one. Malkin has ONE other such season. So lets just wait and see if Malkin can keep it up, and become as complete a player as Forsberg was at his best.
