Most overrated: Tavares or Datsyuk?
 
Tavares or Datsyuk?

LPH 04-11-2013 07:17 PM

I don't think either is the most overrated player on HF boards

Avs44 04-11-2013 07:20 PM

Uh...neither? Though if I had to pick between these two, definitely Tavares. How is Datsyuk overrated?

Dominate Kesler 04-11-2013 07:27 PM

How is Tavares overrated?

Datsyuk is probably the most overrated on HF. (people actually anoint him the best player...)

Followed by,

Nash
Parise
Hall
Giroux
Perry

roflstomper 04-11-2013 07:29 PM

Taylor Hall.

Anth93 04-11-2013 07:30 PM

Karlsson.

Too many irrational people would take him over Crosby.

Mrb1p 04-11-2013 07:30 PM

Karlsson, Toews and Nash come to mind.

Because people are constantly saying he's one of, if not the best players in the world.

Brody 04-11-2013 07:34 PM

Out of the two, Datsyuk.

WolfgangAmadeusEller* 04-11-2013 07:35 PM

Datsyuk, AINEC.

TopShelfYzerman 04-11-2013 07:36 PM

Out of the 2 Datsyuk. but neither overrated

Screw You Rick Nash 04-11-2013 07:36 PM

None of them, but good job making a ridiculous poll with not enough options.

Chieftans22* 04-11-2013 07:37 PM

Tavares, some put him in the same conversation as Crosby :laugh:

lboogie42* 04-11-2013 07:40 PM

They both are. But dats will get less votes because he is so incredibly overrated. Oh the irony

Sureves 04-11-2013 07:43 PM

Taylor Hall because you're an Edmonton fan

19Yzerman19 04-11-2013 07:44 PM

How is Datsyuk overrated? He completely meets the hype.

"Best player in the world," "top five player in the NHL", "best 2 way player in the league" etc etc. and I'm going to get blown up for this but whatever.

Quantitatively, it has to be Subban. His metrics are terrible for a player that is valued as much as he is (QoC, etc.). Don't get me wrong, he's a very good player (top 10 d-man with norris potential, etc.) but he's not nearly the talent people are comparing him to. For example, Karlsson, who is a top 5 player in this league is apparently worthy of comparison.

Couturier would be my other pick. I don't think he's proven anything in this league. He has the name and everything, but he's over-hyped. I don't think he rounds out as a #1C in this league at all. If it weren't for his pre-draft hype, people wouldn't value him as highly. Obviously, this opinion is going to ruffle some feathers.

You know who says these things more than anyone? The guys that have to play against him.

sayheykid 04-11-2013 07:54 PM

Neither are the most overrated on these boards, but for the purposes of this comparison I'll say Tavares.

I don't think any player in the NHL would say Datsyuk is the best in the world. They would say he has the best hands, that's probably about it.

Except for being called the best player in the world the rest are true he is a top 5 player, and the rest he can be argued for.
