... Except dion doesn't really have swagger IMO. He isn't respected in the least among his peers (3 x's voted most overrated?), and hasn't even established himself as anything yet. He's not established as a top offensive player anymore, he's not considered a top defender either.... He's not consistent at all. He can be great, he can play bad. He used to throw a lot of big hits, not so much anymore, he used to fight (well 10xs once in a season), not so much anymore, he used to score ALOT, not so much anymore. He's like Bryan McCabe, but peaked much earlier in his career. Don't get me wrong, phaneuf is ok, sometimes great, but i think he deserves the overrated tag. He's an ok captain, but I'd prefer a captain with consistency, and respect among his peers and league. Too bad those aren't so easy to come by these days.
