I don't think Jack Johnson is that bad. Still slightly overrated. Not nearly as overrated as Erik.

Same for Jack Johnson.

I don't know who the most overrated player int he NHL is. I'd say Malkin but he's fallen off peoples radar. I think Crosby is overrated in the sense that a lot of people think he's miles and miles better than the next center, which isn't true at all to me. You can argue that a handful of centers are better than Crosby, it just so happens he's been marketed as the next Gretzky and some have accepted that, whether they like to admit it or not.



I changed my mind. Roberto Luongo is the most overrated player in the NHL.
There are centers better than Crosby?

Who?

Your ability to determine overrated from bad is lacking though. Overrated has almost nothing to do with ability. It's 99% hype.

This.

Someone tried to tell me that Girardi was close in caliber with Ryan Suter yesterday. It wasn't even a Ranger fan.

Marc Staal. I've heard him called top 10 in the league. Defensively he lives up to his hype, but to be top 10 in the league you need to be better than 29 points on the offensive end. Again, like with Datsyuk, I'm not questioning Staal's ability, I'm question assessments made about him.

I like that question, name an overrated Ranger. And be objective, you can't say no one is overrated!

We've gone over this argument before ad nauseum.

Once you get past the elites there's a handful of defensemen who are basically equal and Staal is right in the mix.

The defense pairing of Staal-Girardi is overrated by Rangers fans.

The next time I see a Rangers fan go over to the main boards and insinuate that Staal-Girardi is the best pair in the league... oh man, you are embarrassing us all.

If you're as old as you say you are, I'd begin to worry. You know, senility isn't a bad thing. You can come out and admit to it.

He has become a really cool character and a fun player to watch. The Boston organization at the time treated him like crap and completely messed his head up. It took a few years in SJ for him to break out. He could play for my team any day.

[QUOTE=Brian Boyle;34831489]If you've been around hockey for 40+ years why does it say you're 26 on your profile. That'd be a mathematical absurdity.

I think Girardi is also overrated because alot of people say he's on par with Staal defensively. This is just one standard though. That's why it's kind of pointless arguing this. Overrated could mean alot of things and it's really all objective.
