Put this guy on a crappy team and hes another rod brind'amour or jonathan toews. Fedorov is hfboard's offficial prettyboy, lol.
I somewhat agree.
Fedorov's peak was outstanding but for much of the rest of his regular season career he was coasting in comparison -- and he had a team where he could do so.
He gets full marks from me for picking up again at playoff time but it is a luxury he enjoyed that he could pace himself in the regular season and have lots of gas left for the playoffs.
Most players don't get that opportunity.
