I would say no. He is still undisputably one of the best players in the World and arguably the best player in the world. In many previous years he would be undisputably the best player in the world but we currently have 3 forwards around the same emerging- Ovechkin, Malkin, and Crosby, who are the greatest forward talents the sport has seen since the great one and Mario were playing.

He might well be overhyped, which is different than overrated. However that is a good thing, as overhyped media stars is what attracts more American viewers to sports anyway and that is what the NHL needs.
