I like that you get both ends of the overrated/underrated spectrum around here.
It's not both ends of the spectrum around here - Antropov is getting ridiculously underrated.

Antropov is a better defensive player than young Staal. If Staal continues to develop his defensive game, then in a few years he may reach that level.

And yeah, Fedotenko is nowhere in the same league, in any facet of the game.

Fedotenko is 15gl/35pt 3rd line type player, Antropov is a 30gl/60pt borderline 1st line type player.

Last 3 years (including this year):

N.Antropov (28): 158gms, 57gls, 115pts (82gms, 30gls, 60pts)
P.Sykora (32): 192gms, 62gls, 143pts (82gms, 27gls, 61pts)
R.Fedotenko (29): 177gms, 36gls, 81pts (82gms, 17gls, 38pts)

A comparison of Antropov to Fedotenko is just plain silly, to tell the truth.

Antropov is a Sykora-level offensive player, while being a dominant defensive player as well.
