There's a wide range of opinions about Forsberg and Messier. Forsberg may be underrated by some, but I doubt it's because he missed a handful of games each year. He played more than 60 games only 6 times and never scored more than 30 goals. Messier may be underrated by some, but again I doubt it's because he missed a handful of games each year. He was top 5 in PPG twice (3rd each time), so it wouldn't seem a few extra games would have made a big difference.
I would really like to know where this notion that Forsberg was better than Sakic in the playoffs is coming from?

Sakic GP-166 G-81 A-101 P-182 PpG-1.10 GpG-0.49 Game Winning Goals-19
Forsberg GP-151 G-64 A-107 P-171 PpG-1.13 GpG-0.42 Game Winning Goals-14

I'm sorry but I see no possible way that one could clearly elevate Forsberg over Joe in the playoff's.
If there's an edge to be found, it's clearly for Joe with his goal totals, game winning goals and then there's the small matter of Joe's name on the Conn Smythe.
