Biased or not, but the best vet in these olympics is Selänne. Tomorrow, against Germany, he`ll seal his place in history by becoming the all-time leader in points.

In terms of dominance, not longevity, ha's nowhere close to Jagr & Forsberg.

I wish these guys could play forever. I remember the day each was drafted to the NHL.

Where's the love for Ziggy Palffy? He should be in the thread title. He looked very good last night. I don't know why he didn't play the last 5 minutes or so. Maybe his endurance is poor. But, he looked as good as he did 5+ years.

Very true. At times Palffy was absolutely amazing for the Kings. I still don't see why Palffy left the NHL since he can still play. Remember when Jozef Stumpel led the entire NHL in scoring about a month into the season?

The Palffy Taffy!! LOL!

80s hockey was the best EVER and there is NO doubt about it!!

Bossy, Isles dynasty (although I missed those), Gretzky, Oilers dynasty, Lemieux, Coffey, Yzerman, Cam Neely, Messier, Hawerchuck, Gartner, Probert, Kocur, best fighting era EVER, Kings Triple Crown Line, Marcel Dionne, Al Macinnis, Ray Bourque, etc. etc.

If Bobby Orr could've played into the 80s then the 80s would've been absolutely PERFECT!!!

Perhaps more open and fun to watch, but not even close to the level NHL is played at today.

Trivia quiz, I dont know the answer, but who and how many current NHLers played an NHL game in the 80's decade?

Chelios would be an obvious answer except hes in the AHL

Summary:

I hope Jagr is back in the NHL next season for a Cup run, no whichever (contending) team.

The natural choice would be the Pens.

Recchi played 15 games in 88-89

Schneider played 4 games in 87-88

Rob Blake possibly did, as he played 4 games in 89-90

Mike Modano played the full 89-90 season

Rod Brind'Amour played the full 89-90 season

I guess there are more than I thought.

I think he's a top line winger for any team, to be honest. When he's motivated, and he's on....forget it...he's still one of the best players in the world at 38.

I have to admit I mostly like him because his name is so awesome.

Nowhere close.. so I guess you mean Jagr and Forsberg have won more olympic scoring races than Selänne?

Have they really won more than the 2 Selänne has won or are you just talking out of your butt?

Jagr, Selanne, Forsberg, Palffy and Federov, have all be a treat to watch. These are the players that got me into the NHL when I was a kid, it's amazing being able to see them one last time. You can tell they're laying it all on the line too.

Last time i checked Jagr was from the Czech Republic.

Anyways here are the seasons Jagr won Art Ross:

94-95 70p - Fedorov had 50p = 20p differential
97-98 102p - Fedorov had 17p = 85p differential
98-99 127p - Fedorov had 63p = 64p differential
99-00 96p - Fedorov had 62p = 34p differential
00-01 121p - Fedorov had 69p = 52p differential

Do you really think Fedorov would have challenged Jagr for Art Ross if he didn´t "sacrifice offense for winning"?

On topic:

Fedorov is nothing special for his age. There´s alot of better players 35+ yo in the NHL today Alfredsson, Selanne, Lidstrom,Brodeur etc.

Fedorov had 260gp 52g 108a 160p after the age 35

some examples of current older players in the league:
Selanne 290gp 145g 145a 290p
Alfredsson 201gp 81g 131a 212p
Whitney 207gp 68g 118a 186p

edit. those are totals for 35+ scoring

In terms of dominance, and not longevity, Fedorov is clearly ahead of Forsberg.

From 1994 to 1996 he won more major NHL awards than Forsberg has won in his entire career.

Add Bure (my favorite player ever) and everyone on the Rangers from 1989 on....and you've got my list..

Too bad he was talking about Selanne.
