I believe Sakic was a substantially better point producer than the Rocket. Besides the 6 already mentioned (Gretzky, Lemieux, Jagr, Howe, Orr, Espo):

- the only other player that I see probably having a significant edge on Sakic in terms of peak (best 3-5 seasons) point production is Lafleur... although Crosby could very possibly have a significant edge soon as well.

- as we get more into prime (best 8-10 seasons), players like Orr and Lafleur drop into the range of Sakic (and that of many others as well)

- Sakic is very strong on a career basis, with his adjusted PARV (at 0.5 or 0.6 AdjPPG RV) 5th, just ahead of Espo... and his GCARV just behind Espo.
