My question for you is what year was Sakic's best year? Was it 96 or 01?? Below are the stats for each year: 1996 Regular Season: 82 GP 51G 69A 120P +14 96 Playoffs: 22GP-18G 16A 34P +10 Combined: 104GP-69G-85A-154P +24 This is the first year Sakic established him self as a primier player winning the Con Smyth and his First Stanley Cup. This is also Sakic's best playoff run ever scoring the 2nd most goals all time in 1 playoff with 18. Sakic also finished 3rd in scoring in the whole NHL behind Penguins Lemiux and Jagr and just ahead of another Penguin Francis. 2001: Regular Season: 82GP 54G 64A 118P +45 Playoffs: 21GP 13G 13A 26P +6 Combined: 103GP-67G-77A-144P +51 This is Sakic's first and only Hart and Pearson award of his career. Sakic finished 2nd in scoring in the NHL only behind Jagr, but most likely would of won the Art Ross had Mario not un-retired. Sakic had a very good playoff again especially his game 7 performance against the Devils. Sakic also won the Lady Byng award this year. For me I would have to say 1996 was his best year. He didn't win the Hart trophy that year but his playoffs was one of the greatest ever. He also shed his label as playoff underachiever. Thoughts?
