Jagr has always had emotional problems.

how is forsberg tied with jagr? do people really have that short of a memory? forsberg's been an awesome player, but jagr was really on a whole different level. you know, forsberg was in the league when jagr won his 5 art ross trophies.

Jagr, in his prime, was a step above Forsberg and Sakic when they were at their best. He had 149 freaking points if I remember correctly.

I hate Jagr. He's not the best of the 3, but in his prime, he was one of the best of all time. It was all about offense, but he was a lot better than the two other.

if I am building a franchise and can draft just one of them, I'm drafting Sakic without hesitation.


My thoughts exactly. Sakic is a true leader and pure class. I'd take him on my team in a heartbeat.

Jagr by far IMO.

If Jagr played in the 80's NHL, I think he would have put up better offensive numbers than Gretzky...Jagr in his prime was near unstoppable. Jagr,Lindros, and Neely were the players that got me really interested in the sport of hockey.

Steve Yzerman.

155 points in a season. STILL the greatest scoring season by a player NOT named Gretzky or Lemieux.

OK, I'd take Sakic, because I want great players who make others on their team great, as well. Jagr, for all his individual skill, never did that. HE could score almost at will, but didn't particularly raise anyone else's game much.

Forsberg is right now almost exactly even with Jagr when Jagr was in his prime. Scoring was a lot higher in 1995 than in 2004. And Jagr was allowed to free-lance a lot more than anyone is today. You let Forsberg float around by the blue line and HE'D score 45-50 goals every year. Plus have 75 assists.

Of the 3 listed, I'd build a team around Sakic. He'd be my captain and leader for a decade or more. Better than the other 2.

1. Jaromir Jagr
2. Joe Sakic
3. Peter Forsberg

Jagr used to run over defensemen in the 1990's. Say what you want about his desire, but it is ridiculous to question his ability to dominate the NHL in his prime. He dominated in a similar way that Lemieux and Gretzky had done before Jagr.

Sakic's leadership makes him hard to pass up.

Forsberg is still a great play-maker, and plays well in his own end, but he has never been a big goal scorer. He's never had more than 30 goals in a season.

Jagr and Sakic are sure-things for the Hockey Hall of Fame, but Forsberg has some work to be done to get the career statistics worthy of that honor. I would say about two or three more good seasons.

Sakic is probably the most consistent...
Forsberg is probably the most physically dominant...
but Jagr is clearly the best player out of the three. The only player currently in the league who was better in their prime is Lemieux.

Jagr is the most TALENTED, but not the best because he doesn't have the heart to go with it. Forsberg and Sakic do.

You must have started watching hockey three years ago.

I went with Jagr..he is just an elite player. I cant say that about sakic, nor forsberg. Forsberg has enough talent perhaps to make it there, but he never did produce enough, and was injured often.

Jagr though, if he weren't double teamed all the time and everything else he has to go through, I believe would still be the best scorer in the league..he still has enough in him to take more art ross trophies..I wouldnt be shocked to see him regain it next year or some other time.

But in their primes yes, jagr easily.

I completely agree. I chose Forsberg simply because of the heart he shows, but Jagr, in my opinion would have put up the best offensive numbers ever, had he played in the 80's.

For pure skill, it doesn't get much better than Jagr.

How can you honestly say that Forsberg and Sakic are not elite players?
