Oxford dictionary gives the definition of without peer:

unrivalled:

he is a goalkeeper without peer


I was wondering if "he's the best goalkeeper, bar none" carries a stronger emphasis than "without peer" version. Would you consider them as equivalent?

    Yes, it's just two of the many hyperbolic ways of saying he's the best of the best.
