The bolded, you have said this before and I still have yet to understand it.

Yzerman played 2 more seasons, 136 more games and had 114 more points than Sakic.
Yzerman's peak height blows Sakic's peak height out of the water.
The only thing thing one might give to Sakic is the length of his offensive peak and even that isn't by much. They were both point per game or better players for the exact same amount of seasons, 18.
And a 35 year old Yzerman brought more to the table than a 35 year old Sakic did.

I mean I accept the fact that Sakic generally places better than Yzerman here but I will never agree with it or ever understand it.

Having witnessed the full careers of both players in great detail, I could never and will never put Sakic ahead of Stevie.
