I went for the underdog bure... something about back to back 60 goal seasons... another 51... then later back to back 58 and 59 goal seasons is pretty awesome

Fedorov was on pace for 113 points in 1996 (missing only 4 games), and he played half a dozen games on defence.

Taking only his 72 games as a forward into account, he was on pace for another 118-120 point season with close to 45 goals...he also won another Selke that year.

I'll take a peak Fedorov over all of the above.

Considering sakic's point totals go up and down (109 then 94, 100 then 40, 105 then 92, 118 then 79, 120 then 74) I choose Fedorov

The only forwards who can say that they had better seasons are probably Lemieux, Gretzky and Yzerman and they all had to put up insane offensive totals.
Are you forgetting Gordie Howe? Check out his 52-53 season, 95 points, 2nd place was linemate Lindsay with 71, next was Richard with 61 plus he was physically a beast. You can't even really say Fedorov's 93-94 season was that much better then Gilmour's the year prior. He scored 127 points, won the Selke and had an incredible playoffs. Plus there's Richard's 50 in 50 and so on. Fedorov had a great year but there have been many better then it.

I take Sakic, it was real tough between him and Forsberg. If Fedorov had of consistently tried harder he might have got the nod.

if forsberg didn't get hurt so god damn much, I'm quite sure he would have gotten the mass majority of votes in this poll.

Hard to vote against Sakic. It was either him, Fedorov or Forsberg.

Think about it, has anyone on this list had a season as good as 2001? He wins the Hart, the Cup, leads the playoffs in points and has a 1st team all-star. Not to mention he loses the Art Ross by three measley points. Forsberg needed to comeback against Naslund to win the Ross. IMO a 2001 Jagr > 2003 Naslund. Fedorov had the Hart and Selke in the same year, but isnt quite as decorated as Sakic in 2001

76 goals in rookie season? Selanne.

But that's just ridiculous.

Fedorov played at this level for only ONE season. Dennis Maruk, anyone?

92-93 was a much higher scoring era/year that featured shoddy defensive play. Gilmour's season is overlooked for the same reasons that Moginy's and selanne's are...the goals per game that year, and for much of the late 1980s, was so high it was staggering.

Gilmour was not close to a 94 Fedorov, he was 9th in scoring...he improved to 4th the year after, but with 111 points was outscored significantly be Fedorov (and beaten for the Selke).

Gilmour's 93 was like Fedorov's 96...great, but not MVP caliber, in my opinion.

Agreed.

I'd like to add:

3 years = Fedorov
