Forsberg and it's not even close, total package.

I'm talking about NHL now though.

Very difficult to compare non NHL'ers with NHL'ers, almost like two different sports, comparing hockey in North America to Sweden.

The difference in physical play is still huge even though Sweden has changed quite a lot the last 10-15 years or so (slowly becoming more physical and attacking).

Also the rinks having different sizes making NHL a faster more offensive game.

Has to be either Kent Nilsson or Peter Forsberg, in my opinion.

hehe we know in Denmark since he played in both Rødovre and Ålborg for two seasons and Herlev 1 season. Danish League most points three times!
But then this guy went all over the place in his career - 7 nations and 13 different leagues. Either he really wanted to see the world or was very restless

Peter Forsberg. He was probably top 3 best player in NHL, when he stayed healthy.. Really a complete package. Kent Nilsson was also great, but at the time he played there was another player with two nines on his back who stole all the attention. Lidström and Sundin is right behind them imo.

Have to mention Tobbe "Måsen" Örnerud, Öster Hockey. Did two seasons in division 1 as a 13-14 year old in 78-80 and scored nearly two points per game. Scholiosis put a tragic end to his career. Anders Mattsson (Lill-Damma) said he was equally good at soccer. #He could do anything with a puck".

Otherwise:

Forsberg > Sundin
Sundin > Lidström
Lidström >/= Forsberg

PS. Pekka Lindmark and The Mask Carlsson. Not to mention Jonas "Road Warrior" Bergqvist.

Börje Salming was not a pure talent, he just had a will of steel and a heart bigger than the baltic see. He's my favorite swedish player of all time along with Mats Sundin.

But when you look at Kenta Nilsson you could see he had some skills you have to be born with.

Who is this, that family name does not exist in Sweden. Furthermore, i cant seem to find a hockey team playing for Östers IF during those years.

Most talented is difficult to say, what we see in the NHL etc are talented players who converted their talents to skills.

The best swedish hockey player ever is without a doubt Peter Forsberg. Best hockey career Lidström. Kenta was exceptional, Loob was great, Salming extraordinary, Sundin elite but Forsberg is one of the best players to ever lace up. Pity his career didnt last...

Forsberg probably. The guy was unreal. Don't discount Salming though. I'm to young to have watched him play, but I've seen a ton of old Leafs games and my god this guy was amazing.

Agree. Followed him since Quebec. Forsberg was one of a kind. His dominance was terrifying at times.
