Cloutier was more impactful on the team's results certainly, but generally "more important" is used when referring to causing positive influence, not the absolute amount of influence the player has on the team's performance. Even if it should be the latter.

Forsberg love is very strong here. I guess I just don't value players that are broken because of their style of play that much. This goes for Forsberg, Lindros, Bure and even Orr. (and many others)
I'd rate Sundin and Salming and perhaps Lundqvist above Forsberg. The worst player in your team is the one that is not playing, be it injury or lack of skill, it doesn't matter.

I saw your post on top 10 Finnish guys of all time, you should do a post and poll like this thread.

Markus Naslund was a looser when it mattered and i cheered when Tomas Holmstrom, who got overlooked firstly, took his place for the 2006 olympics. Gold medal right there.

yep. many of us were happy to see him replaced in vancouver by pavol demitra, and really would have been much happier if nonis had managed to dump him for scott niedermayer as was rumoured (probably wasn't going to happen, due to the brother thing).

if you look at the threads for the early polls, you'll see that the people who saw him play most (with the exception of MS, who is a canucks fan but stands up for markus) all savaging him. most of his defenders were NA-based and mostly saw him from afar.

Why aren't Thomas Gradin, Patrik Sundström, Bengt-Åke Gustafsson and Per-Erik Eklund on the top 25? And a few on the list should not be there at all.

In the 70s and big portion of 80s it was a lot tougher to make an impact for Europeans than today. Today the game is very "European" friendly with coaches and GMs very aware of how to handle talents.

Patrik Sundstrom for instance would have been a franchise player today. In my book the great centers from Sweden in the 80s were better than many of the players of today. Majority of the players Sweden had in NHL back then were topnotch player, making a difference for national team. Today it feels very watered with random players playing regular shifts in their NHL teams but useless in national team.
