Also while Pronger played very well in Anaheim (slipping in his Captain season but he was still very good and did return to form), I would have to argue that Niedermayer was the controlling force from the backend while in Anaheim. There were so many games that he would just take over and seemingly skate for the entire 20 minutes of a 3rd period to ensure a win. Never coming close to exhaustion. Niedermayer might be overrated, but at the same time I feel he isn't given the proper credit, especially for his seasons in Anaheim. He may be overrated for playing on good teams (NJ, ANA, Canada) but I feel his style of play is ignored when people look to combat his success. If that makes any sense which I feel it doesn't.
