Comparing stats directly is pointless because they played in different eras, so let's look at how they did against their peers, in terms of top 10 finishes in the league in goals, assists, points, All star game appearances, and then awards.
Yzerman-6-5-6-9 Lindsay, Smythe, Selke, Masterson
Fedorov-1-1-2-6 Selke (2), Hart, Lindsay
Datsyuk-0-5-3-3 Byng (4) Selke (3)
Zetterberg 1-2-2-0 Smythe
Yzerman is the best center to ever wear the Winged Wheel, and if Howe hadn't been a Wing he'd be the best forward ever.
Fedorov didn't have a ton of top 10 finishes, but he was the Wings' #2 center for a lot of his time here when Yzerman was healthy, and his Hart season showed what he could do when given the ice time. He was also one of, if not the best, defensive forwards in the game. He gets a lot of crap for how he left and his hold out.
Datsyuk is a better passer and defender than Fedorov, but he's never been a big goal guy.
Zetterberg has changed his game from more of a scorer to a set up guy.
