I think I'm going to be in the minority here but if I could have 15 years of Fedorov or 15 years of Sundin, I'd take Sundin. A star no matter what, no matter what he had to work with. Less playoff success, but he was always the go-to guy and, post-Nords, never had anyone to take any pressure off him like Fedorov had. Fedorov was better during his (short) peak though.
I love these guys saying Feds won b/c of Yzerman and Lidstrom, while totally ignoring the fact that he's one of the very very very few players to post 4 straight 20+ point playoff seasons. Yeah, he wasn't one of the main reasons they won those Cups at all. In his 3 Cups with Detroit he was 2nd/1st/5th in goals, 1st/5th/2nd in assists, and 1st/2nd/2nd in points on the team. He was the runaway Conn Smythe choice going into the 1995 Finals had the Wings won and his 24 points was 6 ahead of anyone else on the team. When the Devils shut him down in the Finals, nobody else on the team could pick up the slack - quite simply Fedorov was carrying the Wings there (Yzerman only had 12 points, most for any forward not on Fedorov's line). He has 168 points in 169 career playoff games (Sundin has an underwhelming 74 points in 83 games).
Fedorov was never along for the ride or carried by his teammates to a Cup. He was one the guys doing the heavy lifting.
I might take a current Sundin over a current Fedorov, but it's close. As for the poll question, Fedorov all the way.
Who knows what Sundin will look like after missing half a season, but he's clearly been the better of the two over the last 5+ years. Sergei has topped 70 points once in the last 13 years. Fedorov was a monster in the 90's though, definitely better than Sundin ever was.
Sundin's only 12 points back of Fedorov this season, it'll be interesting to see who ends up with more...
They're both great players and you can rely on them to do well for your team; yet, I voted for Fedorov because he's had a much more efficient career than Sundin. That's not to take any credit from Sundin with his consistency, though.
