With that being said I would say that Ovechkin is the most overrated player in the NHL.
I do think he's top 5 and I still think he's overrated. Like I said, being overrated doesn't mean you're not a great player.

Datsyuk is the best defensive forward in the world, and a point per game player. He's one of the top five players in the NHL.

Marleau is a good one. I was thinking about saying him but I think over the past few years the Sharks inability to get to the Finals has more people looking down on the entirety of the team.

There's a difference between comparing him to one player and saying he's overrated. Datsyuk is one of the best players in the game. Between his 2 way game, stick handling, sniping, shoot out %, work ethic, etc he's top 10 forward easily. Now ask me if I want Crosby or Datsyuk I'll take Sid mainly because of the age differential.

I think the most overrated player in the Nhl would be Ryan Kesler, and its not even close.

How can you be one of the 5 best players in the game and be overrated that makes no sense

Do you even watch the games or are you throwing darts at a dartboard when picking out overrated players? Pavel Datsyuk is the best all around player in the nhl and if Rick Nash were a Ranger playing with Richards instead of that lump of s*** Maryjane, they would build a monument outside the garden for him. Nash would score 50 goals playing with Richards-guaranteed! You better rethink your decision pal.

Even if Datsyuk were overrated, he is FAR from one of the most.

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

Also most overrated prospect is Nino IMO.
I consider Letang overrated because he's not that good defensively as people make him out to be. His GA/60 mins was slightly below team average, but what's worse is he didn't even play against the top opposing players and started more than half his shifts in the offensive zone. He also needs to prove to rack up the point totals without Crosby in the lineup and he had the perfect opportunity to prove he's one of the league's elite defenseman. He was far from impressive against the Lightning in the playoffs too. Don't get me wrong he's a nice puckmover, but he isn't quite a #1 defenseman yet, same goes to Erik Johnson.

Agreed with Bieksa claim, his play dropped off after Hamhuis went down.

Also Nino, he wasn't impressive in his 9 game stint, but who knows maybe he did really well in juniors.

It's not just that statement either. It's more so stuff like "oh he's so underrated, he does all these things that noone sees, he's so good defensively..." and all this other stuff. To that I say "ok I get it, I see it. we all know Datsyuk is great." To me the constant efforts to convince the world how good this guy is have become an overstatement themselves, or redundant at the very least.

Nah, that's Ryan Miller. One season of under a 2.50 GAA and he's the best goalie in the NHL.

I think the Olympics performance he put up in 2010 really put him overboard in peoples eyes. Like you said, one season under 2.50 GAA but because of the Olympics, people think he is God and the best goalie in the NHL

Rick Nash gets treated like he scores 60 goals every year. His career high is 41. Overrated/underrated is not about how good a player is, it's about the treatment they receive. People already wanna build that statue. And for what? A 35 goal scorer?

I'll take Nash over Gaborik any day of the week.

Rick Nash is overrated, too. He's a career 65-70 point player.

"but...but...if he had a #1 center!11"

If he was as good as people say, he wouldn't need a #1 center to produce. It isn't like he's playing with scrubs, either.

U know what, might as well stick Queen Henrik and Mark Staal on the list for overrated players. Now for the fallout from the more loyal than objective Ranger fans-bring it on!

Rick Nash is overrated, people make him out as an elite player. If he was elite, he'd make teammates better like Jarome Iginla carved out paychecks for many teammates like Langkow, Tanguay, Conroy, etc.
