Thanks for the info. However I was not criticizing Makarov vs. Messier. It's the double standard that I don't like. Selanne was crucial for Finland to get top4 in 98. He was the leading scorer in those olympics.

So how can one say that Fedorov was better face to face? Because Finland lost to Russia? Then he should not be citing that Makarov was better even though Russia lost. You can not have both.

Personally I think that comparing team achievements is stupid because this is a team sport and one man can do only so little.
