Peter Forsberg
The best player in the famous Nordiques/Flyers Eric Lindros trade was not Lindros. Rather it was the Swedish born playmaker, Peter Forsberg, who would win the Hart Trophy, the Art Ross Trophy and two Olympic Gold Medals and two Colorado Avalanche. Not a bad career for what was perceived as a throwaway in that trade!

Another lock. Career length puts him in good company with Pavel Bure and Pat LaFontaine among others. Generational talent types, Peter gets in, probably this year.

Forsberg is the most exciting hockey player I've ever seen. He made me a hockey fan. Still looking for somebody to compare for excitement. Crosby has a little higher ppg, but not as exciting. When Forsberg was on the ice you knew something was going to happen. A bunch of his line mates had their best year with Forsberg.
