Being overrated means you think people treat him like a better defenseman then he actually was.
I have to ask-- How good of a defenseman do you think he is, and how good of a defenseman do you think people treat him like? If the two aren't that far apart, then you don't really think he's overrated at all-- and are just annoyed by how well-liked he is.
Nobody treats him like a #1 franchise defenseman or anything, IMO, so I don't really get where you're coming from about that, personally.
I think that people have a higher opinion of his impact, and of the impact of his not being here, than is necessarily merited. I mean, it comes up at least monthly how Gillis made a horrible awful mistake by not giving a contract to a guy that wasn't even skating yet, and how *insert player X* is no good because if only the Canucks could have just kept Mitchell instead.
