to me, at their best, aside from one playoff run (which I have seen Krejci and Franzen and Barry Pederson, etc do) Malkin is the weakest link. Depending on what I'm looking at and my mood, Crosby, Forsberg and Sakic could interchange for top spot. I feel Malkin is a very small, yet clear step inferior. Also, I never saw Forsberg or Sakic 'gotten to' in the way that I have seen Sid.

I just reread my post and it looks too one-sided. To be clear - I pick Forsberg and Sakic, but its a very good question, and I see the Sid/Malkin argument as very valid..... a virtual coinflip. Throw in Yzerman and Fedorov, and, in 4th place, but still with an argument, I'd put Zetts and Datsyuk at their best in the convo. Those two could shut down anyone when healthy, while producing.
