Again, it would have been irrational if I had not given any reasons. That being said, Vlasic is just another version of Scott Hannan. I'd much rather have a defenseman that could do the same thing as Vlasic and maybe bring a mean streak too. Getting back to the original topic, Under-rated? I'd say no.
Anyone can try and spin words and "poison the well" all they want, but it is well known that the Sharks have disappointed year after year. So the players should be accountable and be called out. Anything else would be irrational.
