Most overrated player on the nhl

I decided to keep this away from the main board out of fear of bloodshed...
Id argue jordan Staal,Kris letang,Tyler bozak (as far as I'm concerned he belongs in Europe), kessel and Kesler...I like Kesler a lot actually but one of roommates said if he could pick one player to build a franchise with other than Crosby it would be Kesler ...sorry BB...I'll justify when I'm off my iphone
Nominate below...

Don't really get the feeling people overrate Staal very much. They just see him for what he is, a decent to great two way player.

lol Letang. Overrated. Not even close. He's underrated, if anything.

I'd say Dustin Brown, Ryan Miller, and Shea Weber.

Funny, I think Datsyuk is one of the most underrated.

Datsyuk is rated perfectly fine. Most consider him a 3-5 player overall, and that's what he is.

Hes probably the most complete player in the NHL. I suggest you watch him more. The guy is almost a perfect hockey player.

Now Datsyuk is fantastic, but you can be a great player and still be overrated. Like Aaron Rogers. In fact he's a good example because the way he came to be overrated the same way Datsyuk did. Aaron Rogers and Pavel Datsyuk are players who are so underrated they're overrated. What happened with them is, they were underrated so horribly for so long, that when people finally realized how good they were, they took it too far. I'm also a big football talker on the web and I'm convinced people actually pray to Aaron Rogers. I'm seeing the same trend with Datsyuk.

I still fail to see how Letang is "overrated", though.

Erik is a great pick. I like Jack though. Also, agreed on Letang.

Agreed he is not league's above the rest. I think if it came down to a 7 game series, I'd rather have Getzlaf.

Ryan Getzlaf? Over Pavel Datsyuk?

Nash - yeah he's a 30 goal scorer, but IMO doesn't dominate the game like he should if he was the 'superstar' people made him out to be.

I hear an awful lot of Datsyuk > Crosby. That right there is overrating him. There's no conceivable way he's a better player than Crosby.

Well I'm a Wings fan and I think Crosby is by far the best player in the NHL. But I do think Datsyuk is at least top 5 if not top 3. If you think he's overrated then you do not pay attention to all of the little things he does to help his team.

With that being said I would say that Ovechkin is the most overrated player in the NHL.

Letang's considered overrated because he plays with Crosby, deserved or undeserved, and he won't shrug it until he puts up the same amount of points he does sans Crosby. Unfair? Probably.

I'm gonna throw Kevin Bieska's name into the pot.

Also most overrated prospect is Nino IMO.
