I tend to agree that often our fan base overrates our own players. But most do that.

What I have noticed lately though is other fan bases underrated Oiler players due to them being on a crappy team. Lots of posts like so and so isn't worth anything because he plays for the Oilers. And them promptly offers up a handful of garbage for said player (often Eberle).
