Personally, I don't buy it.

It's not like Heatley-Spezza-Alfredsson were all offence, all the time.
the fans that predicted 60 goals, seen a pure goal scorer, going on the wing of a pure playmaker.

wasn't really realistic predictions. but the sharks 1st line wasn't nearly used nearly as much as an offensive put the other team in fear type line. they started going strength vs strength. the line was starting more of there time in the defensive zone then the offensive zone.

Elias in 2000-2001 > Alfredsson in 2005-2006
Alfredsson 05-06
Pts = T-4th
G = 9th
PPG = 3rd
GPG = 10th
Hart = 5th
Selke = 4th
Byng = 4th

Elias 00-01
Pts = 3rd
G = 10th
PPG = 8th
GPG = T-16th
Hart = 6th
Selke = 8th
Byng = 26th

* 05-06 was also the last season that Alfredsson played the point on the powerplay for Ottawa. The Sens were 2nd, 1st and 4th in the three seasons that Alfie spent on the point (the team has never finished higher than 10th otherwise). He would have finished 31st, 22nd and 18th in scoring as a D-man in those seasons based on PP points alone.

Alfie's injuries hurt his production.
In the 10 seasons from 2000-2010, his PPG finishes (descending):
3, 4, 9, 14, 15, 15, 16, 23, 25, 29

As good as Elias was defensively, I think Alfie was just as good.

I agree with the first response though I would take a prime Thornton over a prime Iginla.

That said, I'd rather have prime-Iginla on my team over prime-Thornton. But, offensively, Thornton definitely takes this.
Nailed it.
