I'd probably take Sakic and Forsberg too, for this reason. They faced some brutal playoff competition in the late '90s/early '00s and rarely failed to shine.

But... in fairness, they also had more support. Swap out Patrick Roy for Marc-Andre Fleury and those Avs might never have won a single Cup. Or, alternatively — in a cap-constrained world, Sakic and Forsberg likely would've had weaker support on the wings.
