The guy posted 31 points, played in every situation, killed penalties, took hundreds of draws (350 more than Malkin), played against the other team's best defensive match-ups, and took the team on his back in the first two series. If he had won the Conn Smythe, only Crosby's most vehement detractors would have called "foul".


I highly doubt it. Jagr, sure. Forsberg? No.
Hahaha why? Can you please give me a good reason for why you think Forsberg wouldnt excel in todays era?
