Daniel Alfredsson, RW

Top 20 finishes
Goals: 9, 9, 9, 12
Assists: 8, 11, 13, 13, 13, 17
Points 4, 7, 9, 15, 17, 19

Award voting finishes
Hart: 5, 16, 17
All Star: 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 9
Selke (all forwards): 3, 10, 11, 15
Selke (wingers only): 2, 3, 4, 4 (these might be off by a rank or two if I incorrectly accounted for multi-positional guys, but I think they are right)

From ATD2012, Alfredsson's overall offensive resume is only a little bit behind Martin St. Louis and Jarome Iginla if you look at their best seasons using V2
Alfredsson actually outperforms St. Louis and Iginla in terms of offense over a period of 5 consecutive years, due to his season-to-season consistency:

Flaws: His hard-working style of play has led him to wear down over the course of his long career, and also led to injuries. Is misunderstood in the leadership department because he's not a rah-rah type. Has declined in general.

Career potential: Savvy veteran two-way winger on the decline.
Obviously, the stuff about "on the decline" is not applicable to the ATD since in our little fantasy world, these guys are ageless wonders.

"If I had that clip on tape, I'd show it a hundred times to my team."'

The low-key Alfredsson, a native of Sweden, is a natural lightning rod for both criticism and praise.
