I don't know.. I think he's probably about right depending on team need.
Personally, I would take him over John Leclair and Steve Schutt (two of the LWs drafted before him) pretty much any day at face value. As always it depends on your teams philosophy etc. but Propp was such a good all around player and the stats don't really do him justice.
In general I think those Flyers teams of the 80s get underrated (Howe, Propp, Poulin, Kerr etc.) because they couldn't close the deal against some dynasty clubs.
Each of those guys were extremely good players.
