I do agree that Yzerman's offensive and defensive peaks were both higher than Sakic. I personally feel Yzerman was a better leader and grittier for sure. I kind of go back and forth on which one I like better.

For whatever reason people seem to discount Yzerman's insane peak season nowadays.. I think because "it was the 80s" but it was quite remarkable to watch I'll say that. Especially considering the strength of the Detroit team at the time.
The people who discredit it are mainly the people who think Crosby is the greatest ever
