I think Bossy's one of the most overrated players of all time. He played on a dynasty team in a high scoring era. He got the puck off his stick very fast before the goalie was ready and scored a lot of goals. He was not a great all around player.

As underrated I'd say Rogie Vachon who was great on lousy teams and is almost forgotten today.
