All 4 of those players will be in the HHOF. The top 60 centers project that was done half way through last season had Forsberg just 2 spots ahead of Crosby. Since that time he added a Hart, Lindsay, Art Ross, 1st team all star and a Gold Medal. If that list was done now, they might have flipped spots. Certainly Crosby will be ahead of him when his career is done, if he isn't already.
Malkin placed 40th on the list. But we are talking about peak here anyways. Malkin has been inconsistent and injured thus holding his ranking back. But at his peak he is a 110 point player who had a 36 point playoff run.
Sakic was much higher at 10th all-time. But I would argue that is more to do with his career accomplishments and longevity rather than him being a better player than Crosby.
The way I see it is:
Crosby > Sakic
Forsberg > Malkin
So I would take the pair that had the best player, Crosby + Malkin.
