Overrated because a few fans think he's worth more and because most of us would rather hang on to him? Right now he's back at wing with Malkin and 2 games in, he hasn't looked that bad. Give him a few more games to shake the being center out of his mindset and he'll be fine as a unit with Malkin and Sykora.

Is he worth much right now? No, but wait a few months and ask again. He will be worth a little more and it'll be because he "scored some goals and points" which means everything to everyone. It doesn't matter that he's the top penalty killer, or that he's one of the guys that plays in key situations at a young age. His offense struggled last year, but he is still just 20yrs old with a long career ahead of him. There is no need to dump him without seeing what he can do in his 3rd year unless it's in a crazy package to land Gaborik in a sign and trade.

That has nothing to do with Bieksa's value, it's a single person's estimation. He might be overrated in that trade proposal but in general, Bieksa is a bonafide top-4 defenseman who is as tough (and ugly) as they come and puts up points.

It's not because the proposal is worse, it's because every single trade proposal that involves Kaberle becomes a love/hate fest between Leafs fans and those of other teams.

On that note, I guess Staal fits the same bill for Pens fans. Everyone is offering up proposals for him (usually for a d-man), and time and time again Pens fans don't like it. In turn, fans of other teams claim we overrate our players too much. Just because we don't want him to be traded for anything less than a young sniping winger with equal upside, doesn't mean we are overrating him. Sure, the proposals may be fair value, sometimes with the edge to the other team. The point is we are getting ZERO incentive to actually deal him at the moment (unless, of course, for the aforementioned deal).

To the proposal- A simple "no" will suffice.
