5 Art Ross trophies, 3 Ted Lindsays, and 1 Hart. Jagr takes this in a landslide.

Not sure if this is a serious poll or yet another attempt for Jagr lovers to heap more praise on their beloved son.

It's pretty obvious Jagr will win this poll, but the gap between him and the other 2 guys isn't really all that large IMO.

(That should get the ball rolling for the Jagr lovers I'm guessing)

Unless you're asking us if we would take Jagr over Dionne and Stastny combined, then this is a bit of a joke.

I really thought these guys would all be closer. Jagr had a higher peak season, But he never had play in the same time as a prime Wayne.

I'm not sure why you'd think this was close, based on this recent poll, where Jagr had 39/90 votes for 3rd best forward since expansion, with his next and most likely competitors (Lafleur and Messier) receiving 10 each:

When people aren't sure if you're serious, you know you brought knives to a gun fight.

I cast the first vote for Stastny solely because I loved watching him and his two brothers together on a line controlling the puck like it was theirs and they weren't going to let anyone else play with it. Saw them work their magic against the Rangers at MSG and became an instant fan.

Jagr, rather easily. It was Jagr who also had some mediocre teams like Dionne but at least Jagr got into the postseason and then led his team further than they should have gone. Dionne might be on par with Jagr if his playoff portfolio mirrors his regular season one. But it doesn't. Plus Dionne never blew the NHL away in points either. Jagr did. Hard to believe between the two there is only one Hart Trophy though. Wow.

Stastny was a marvelous player but I still have him a notch below Dionne. Not much though.

Jagr, but not by much though. He took a lot of nights off, whereas the other two didn't. But his skill set wins it for him.

When comparing forwards offensive abilities, i see Jagr ahead of basically everyone not playing with #'s 99/66. It might be just my fanboyism towards the 90's hockey. But i do honestly think that if rate the offensive abilities with forwards Lemieux/Gretzky are on their own tier. Jagr is alone in the center of the gap between 66/99 and the rest.
