    Tbh i think at their peak for a playoff run give me both Col players first. I prefer Sakic to Forsberg in this context - but also have Yzerman 3rd so this is tough

    Probably pick Sakic because i like him most.

    Super tough decision. Great poll OP, although you shouldn’t have given us an easy way out with the “can’t decide” option.

    Yzerman was consistently better than Fedorov during their careers. While Fedorov had one great peak season, Yzerman’s peak season is the highest scoring of all time outside of Gretzky and Lemieux.

    Forsberg and Sakic were neck in neck their entire careers, with many feeling Forsberg was slightly better at their respective peaks.

    For me it’s Yzerman and Forsberg.

    I also picked Yzerman and Forsberg but I'm pretty sure Fedorov actually outscored Yzerman more often than not during their time together and was also even better defensively for the most part. Yzerman's offensive prime was basically ending once Fedorov peaked though. I also believe his 155 point season was largely a product of the era, but still a great one, just not sure if it was any better than Fedorov's 1994. Realistically though I would choose any combination of Forsberg and whoever else here if they were all at their peaks, he's the only one who I feel was clearly better than the rest at their best.

    Well with all that convincing evidence you’ve posted, how could anyone disagree with you?

    Fedorov outscored Yzerman in his peak from '94-'96, then again from '01-'03, but he only had a better PPG during those peak years and in '03. So outscored him in 6 of 13 years and had a better PPG in only 4 of 13

    Whenever there's a Yzerman/Sakic poll Yzerman always loses, but I always vote for Yzerman.
    I'm a huge Federov fan, but I take Forsberg over Federov so I guess you know where my vote goes.

    Someone here recently must've had a false post then, or maybe it was just playoffs where he outscored him more.

    Fedorov played many games as a defenceman in 97, 01, and 02 though.

    In part because he wasn't producing as a forward

    In 97 Fedorov played as a defenceman because Detroit was 0-3 against the Avs and Bowman wanted to switch things up last minute for that famous March game against Colorado. Detroit won, Fedorov has two points as a D so Bowman kept him there until partway through round 1 of the playoffs.

    In 2002 there was no official reason given but Detroit hit a losing skid and Fedorov (who had played at the all-star game) spoke his mind about how the team had gone off the rails “like against LA last playoffs” and Bowman punished him for it by moving him to D for a month.

    This is Yzerman/Forsberg to me IMO. Sakic and Yzerman are a wash while Forsberg's the best of the bunch with Federov barely behind the other 3.

    Yzerman = Sakic.
    Forsberg > Federov.
