I thought that this was an "Underachiever" thread. Mike York has been anything but underachiever in Ranger blue. In fact, he was an overachiever. Nobody expected a 7th rounder to be a regular, let alone lead the team in goals in his rookie year.

While Tom Poti is a better hockey player, he fits perfectly into the underachiever category. He had only 1 good offensive season, his defensive side has been a chronic problem and he was a 3rd pairing defenseman, while being paid like a top 4.
