Its the Bruins defense that's overrated.

How is Nash overrated? People barely talk about him, and when they do it its normally them bashing him. He also scores 30-40 goals on what is consistently one of the worst offenses and overall worst teams in the league.

Yay, another thread without definitions of what to discuss (and ppl still flock).

I take it that it is under-/overrated as a player right now/this season and not career.

Then it is mostly older elite players in decline who are overrated and young up and coming players with little in the backpack who is underrated. Then there are some other cases as well, as hyped young players or goalies behind a strong defence and whatnot.

Many mentioned above falls under these categories, and many others mentioned are just mentioned for trolling/hyperbole.

Because you're not from Quebec, in the media here he is the best goalie in the NHL (they said it word for word every week), end every softie he gives is just because is team dosen't score enough goal or dosen't play good D or whatever. Seriously I don't know if he's overrated arround the league, but in Quebec he's the first name you should think of.

Don't think Kesler's overrated, just that he's got the biggest ego ever, he earned his Selke, and is having an off season now.

Not to mention he's shown up to every Canadian International Hockey Team for the past decade. World Cup, Olympics, what have you.

It blows my mind to see Jets proposals including Enstrom. He is absolutely untouchable. Easily the best player on the team. He will re-sign in Winnipeg long term this summer.

Brandon Sutter is definition of underrated. Already elite in defensive aspect, he still developed his offensive game. The kid is true gamer. Watch for him, he's wizard.

Wheeler isn't underrated, more like underperforming.

Kid his size and his skill set, should be tearing it up. He shows flashes but isn't consistent enough yet.

I like him though, seems like a good kid....I hope he breaks out.

A lot of people put him on the Crosby level. I don't see a guy who's never gotten more than 32 goals or 100 points as being on the same level as Crosby is. I think Datsyuk's a top 10 player in the league-but not a top 2-3 like most people on HF think.
