Paul Mara, Phoenix : It's difficult to understand why the Lightning dealt Mara away, other than the fact that they were seduced by the iffy notion that Khabibulin was one of the best goaltenders in the league (on some nights this is true, but he's also one of the least consistent netminders in the league). Mara just turned 24 and is coming off two excellent seasons for a team that has struggled. He's big guy, and he's getting 22 minutes a night on the ice. Watch him closely; he could develop rapidly into an outstanding player.

Isn't being underrated all about not receiving recognition?



I love underrated lists as much as I love irony...

in Mara's case it is definately true. most posts on the main board involving Mara fail to acknowledge that he has improved since his days in Tampa where he was a big minus player. quite disgusting actually.

Yes I was thinking that.. you see "Zidlicky-for-Norris" and "A.Markov-the-making-of-a-Superstar?" debates on the main boards and yet nobody mentions Paul Mara who is right up there too.
