Lindros' peak wasn't as long as Crosby's but it was a little better. Fedorov at his peak was hitting 100+ points and winning Selkes.
Crosby Malkin the only duo that both won multiple art rosses. #1 and #2 in ppg in their era. It's them.
Mcdavid Forsberg would break nhl
I think Crosby is the best player listed here, and he and Malkin actually have won 3 Cups together so far. I'll take them as a known quantity over any of the other hypotheticals presented here.
Crosby and malkin very easily 3 cups /4 finals
4 art Ross
Option 1 should be unanimous imo
They are arguably the 2 best players here. And unlike others they have chemistry together and won 3 cups (4 finals).
Dont see an argument for anyone else.
Peak mcdavid isnt better than either Geno or Crosby yet. And all Forsberg is likely to break is himself and go on the IR
If Mcdavid played with Peter Forsberg they would win a bunch
Lindros and Fedorov quite easily if at their best
There’s one duo that’s actually not hypothetical and have a won 3 cups together....
McDavid doesn't really belong in this poll, if only because we don't know what his best is. We only know what he's done in 3 seasons worth of opportunity. That's a bit unfair to him.
Lindros and Federov have 3 Stanley Cups and 5 finals appearances.
From 93-99, only Lemieux and Jagr had a better PPG average than Lindros. Crosby and Malkin would have fewer Art Rosses if they played against Lemieux too.
Yeah it's kind of funny how the most likely correct answer is the only one that actually exists. I think it's close enough that I'd take McDavid and Forsberg for the wow factor, not to mention McDavid may not be at his peak yet.
Crosby's ceiling was cut short due to injury, so I think Forsberg=Malkin and McDavid has the potential to be even better than Crosby's ceiling as played thus I would take McD and Fopa.
Not hating on the Sid+Geno choice though, it's completely fine by me if some prefer them, just saying that I personally think McD can put the other group over the top.
Yeah, but he's arguably as good as the rest ever were right now, it's too bad he hasn't had much opportunity to show it in the playoffs yet though with the crap team he's stuck on.
Don't totally disagree. The answer could be different 5 years from now if Mcdavid really separates himself from Crosby/Malkin. As of now he hasn't played at peak Crosby/Malkin level yet.
And they might have won some more if not for the multiple injuries.
Not quite no, but very close I think, especially when we consider what he's had to work with. I don't feel comfortable declaring him as good until he does something impressive in the playoffs, which I'm sure he will in time.
While Crosby/Malkin is the "right" pick, I went with Lindros/Fedorov. I would love to see Lindros at his peak and Fedorov at his peak going at any other pair that doesn't include Gretzky or Lemieux. Apart from great scoring, with this pair you get very physical play with its matching intimidation factor, and you also get a fantastic defensive presence. That about covers everything you need in hockey, especially if you consider all eras and not just the current one.
this should be simple
the 1st and 3rd best players since 05
Malkin is already comfortably ahead of Forsberg.
Crosby and Malkin. But McDavid could change the answer eventually.
I went with Lindros and Fedorov. They had unreal peaks.
