I think Roenick is a good pick here, and has been underrated for a while in the ATD. The bolded above is pretty much the reason some people have underrated him. He had a wierd fall-off in his play around the time of the lockout, but recovered his game and for a few years there in Phoenix and Philly was just as good as he'd ever been in Chicago, but it doesn't look that way if you just look at his raw points because his late-peak resurgence occured during the dead puck era, and nobody paid attention to the Coyotes at the time. I think JR is on the Keats/Dunderdale level of scoringline centers. Definitely a better all-around player than guys like Federko and Nieuwendyk who always get taken before him.
