Of course Kharlamov has been always overrated. A short carrer, a tragic story... But then, he has been injuried quite often.

The really underrated players in NA are Maltsev and Mikhaiilov. I think the last would win the best rus player poll in Russia if such one were held. And he did win the best WHC player conducted by te IIHF
