Arguably the greatest Swedish forward to ever play the game. Forsberg was a very good all-around player and has no weaknesses other than the fact that he was so prone to injury. He had a skillset that very few players in the world could match. Forsberg was an excellent playmaker, had fine technical skills, great on-ice vision, a strong physical game, was above average defensively and he also had a good shot, which he however could have used more often.
