    Before the tournament started, I heard all the hype about these 2 great players. They both played absolutely brutal; especially Naslund. :speechles

    Yeah.. Naslund played horrible in this tournament and Forsberg just doesn't look like he's close to 100% at all.

    Forsberg is in pain
    Naslund acts like he just got dumped by his girlfriend. and is just floating on the ice.

    Maybe this will make them want to stay with their NHL clubs.

    Today I can say with pride : "I never considered Naslund one of World's top 40 players, even when he was in the top 5 in NHL scoring."

    For once, I was right :teach:

    I'm not even going to bother with this one... if you would rather have 40 guys before Naslund, then I hope you are never an NHL GM.

    Forsberg was fighting injuries (again), but he still showed some effort, Naslund just sucked. Maybe Naslund was still suffering from the elbow injury by Moore.

    If they weren't 100%, they probably should've given their spots to someone else, but the drubbing at the hands of the Czechs was a team loss.

    The curse usually makes you get fatally injured or in a car accident or something, not to suddenly suck.

    this is not for all-time.

    My opinion

    top forwards in the game

    1. Forsberg
    2. Iginla
    3. Naslund
    4. Kovalchuk
    5. Sakic

    You seriously think Naslund is better than Sakic?

    1. Inginla
    2. Thornton
    3. Kovalchuk
    4. Sakic
    5. Forsberg

    Of the older players left in the game...or I should say older centers

    Joe Sakic remains the best of the crop.

    I think right now he plays better than Mario Lemieux, not saying much because of Mario's injury last year, but the year before I thought he was better.

    I'm not saying that over the course of his career he has/was better than Mario, just within recent years...

    I'd take him over Lemieux and Yzerman right now anyday.

    Sakic is the best player in the league.

    Naslund isnt even close to being in the top five.
