Tomas Jonsson is the most underrated Isles' player of all-time.

This guy was an excellent offensive defenseman who had a good all-around game. After Potvin, Persson, Morrow and maybe Langevin and Kenny Jonsson, I might put him next on the list of all-time Isles defensemen, but he doesn't even get a mention as a nominee out of 20+ players and no one even mentions him as missing. And he gets nary a mention on these boards when people hark back to the glory days.

So, try to top Tomas Jonsson on the underrated list....
Wow, just looked up the article. What an AWFUL list of candidates she chose:

Gord Dineen
Travis Hamonic
Roman Hamrlik
Gerry Hart
Kenny Jonsson
Darius Kasparaitis
Uwe Krupp
Bob Lorimer
Andrew MacDonald
Radek Martinek
Bryan McCabe
Ken Morrow
Janne Niinimaa
Stefan Persson
Rich Pilon
Denis Potvin
Jean Potvin
Dylan Reese
Mark Streit
Andy Sutton
Brendan Witt
Alexei Zhitnik

Clearly written by someone who has absolutely no sense of Isles history. Niinimaa? Sutton? Witt? Zhitnik? Reese?????
