Underrated and Overrated

I had some sparetime, so I decided to make two lists of Swedish players in the NHL today.

Top five UnderRated
1. Anton Strålman Tor, What a waste of talent. Hopefully he gets traded soon, to a team that gives him a fair chance.

2. Michael Nylander, Wash
The Capitals are loaded whit offensive talent, Nylander is probably still the best puck-carrier in the league. He should have more icetime.

3. Andreas Lilja, Det
He could be the captain of any team. A leader and charracter and still whit good hockeysense, would have been a star defender ala Souray, had he been an American.

4. PJ Axelsson, Bos
Im sure he'd been a massive point (goals and assists) producer had he not been put in the defenceive 'role-player' role when he first arrived to Boston, a long time ago.

5. Per Ledin, Col

OverRated

1. Robert Nilson, Edm. Im sure his dad has something to do whit him still holding a spot on the team

2. Alexander Steen, StL
I have never seen him do anything that makes him better than any other Sweede or anyone in the league

3. Joel Lundqvist, Dal
Has he learned to skate yet?

4. Hedberg, Atl
Not a particulary good goalie in comparison

5. A. Edler, Van
Still young, he might get better and more secure, I don't know.

I think your list is alright too. Good thinking. I would leave out Bäckman though since he's been dropped by Columbus.
