Most Overrated Defensemen

Going along w/ the overrated forwards I will do a poll on overrated Defensemen.

Next week I'll set up two polls for underrated players (maybe later today if I have time at work but most likely on monday).

Anyway my most overrated Defensemen would be Marc Staal. I know this is a huge surprise and it was hard to pick him but on these boards he is talked about like he is already a superstar. he has yet to find his offensive game, and while good defensively he is still not at an upper echelon. While I have no doubts that he will become a great player in the league, he is overrated on these boards so far as he is talked about as a #1 dman already. I do not think he is yet as I think he is a #3 borderline #2 right now, but should improve by the end of the year.

a close second is Redden, but as he has not played for the Rangers yet and I do not know how he will fit on this new team I couldn't say him yet. but if he plays awful at least I will stop being on Chris Drury's case for the worst contract.
