Forsberg's 95–96 season is still a very impressive season. It was his first full NHL season playing 82 games, and would also be his only 80+ games season, and he finished 5th in the league in points, only 4 points behind teammate Sakic who finished 3rd. Lindros though at 6th place with 115 points had a much better PPG.

One could also argue, if we're only talking about the point race, that Lemieux, Jagr, Sakic, Francis, Lindros, Kariya, Selänne, Mogilny and Fedorov in 95–96 is a bit tougher competition than Näslund, Thornton in Boston, Hejduk, Bertuzzi, Demitra and Glen Murray in 2002–03
