I was looking at the thread for most overrated players of all time, and was wondering who people think is the most underrated player in THEIR teams history?
As a blues fan, I still dont think Federko gets the credit that his numbers deserve, even if he is a HOFer
edit- No players on the HOF top 70 list please, I'm looking for player that the AVERAGE fan has never heard of but contributed immensly to their teams success, so being on a winning team should also be a factor.
Not my team, but Mike Bossy is still underrated today. Maybe the best pure goal scorer ever.
When I saw this thread title, the very first name that popped into my mind was Mike Bossy. From a "homer" perspective, I'll also say Neal Broten. He's an idol here in Minnesota, but I don't think he gets enough credit from hockey fans across the spectrum.
I believe all 3 are hall of famers but i don't think their names are mentioned enough.. they also ended their careers when i was younger but remember hearing stories about how great they were.
For the Bruins a name you hear from the older and more seasoned bruins fans but maybe not from the newer generation if Steve Kasper not points wise but from what i saw of him he was a good on the pk and could shadow some of the best (or at least try to shadow gretzky).
seems to be an anti enforcer sentiment on these forums
I was thinking more the along the lines as good players or possible hall of famers that were over shadowed by the big names.. especially in the 80's... but we can go there.. Probert since he was one of the best fighters of all time and he could actually play.
