The around the NHL thread. The Leaf forum thread is a good read though.

That list makes me happier than the Friday Night "Showcase Revue" circa 1993.

And Leaf game until Friday night, so this is what the topic of conversation will be. Oh My. That should put the Leafs into a bad mood for the Sabre game.

For some reason I have trouble believing that 20% of NHL players think Alex Ovechkin is one of the most 'overrated' players in the league.

That list is way too out of whack to be comprised from credible opinions.

Maybe you overrate some of the players on the list?

So Ovechkin, Kovalchuk, and Kesler say, are overrated? All three receive a justifiable degree of recognition for their respective roles and production, regardless of current performance.

I was mostly joking but I'd definitely say Kesler is massively overrated. People in Vancouver see him as being on par with the likes of Crosby. No joke.

Phaneuf has been overrated ever since Pierre Mcguire declared him a monster at the WJ's awhile back.

No i know that, believe me Im here on the west coase and its out of control with Kesler. Thing is he is massively overrated as a superstar game changer, but legitimately rated as one of the games best shutdown, two way energy players.

If a player is one of the best in any kind of niche, I have difficulty believing that NHLers, who respect the nuances of the game more than anyone, are going to say he's 'overrated.'

I actually AGREE that Iginla has been overrated like forever. He was and probably still is a great player. But people use to overrate him almost to sick superstar almost Crosby level (before there was Crosby in the NHL)

As of today he is older but he is still overrated. Lot of that overeating came after Flames when to the cup finals. But he has failed miserably in other playoffs doing nothing.

People admire though a star who will fight his own battles and stand up for himself even against tough guys.

Pretty sure if anything Spezza is underrated and has been for some time. His turnovers were enough to do the trick as well as his injury history. He was not even a consideration for team Canada at Vancouver.

yeah, spezza is definitely underrated around the league. the team has struggled the past few season. he represents a big part of this team (along with alfie, and now the emerging karlsson), so his image took a tumble with it, especially since he plays in canada. we tend to put everything under a microscope up here.

the goal he got against johnson, definitely one of the best goals of the year, but barely got a mention outside the GDT.

Overrated does not mean they are bums, but perhaps the "god" and "monster" status is to much.

I also found this funny, had it been in some southern american market we would see it all year a la bobby ryan goal last year (which imo Spezza's is a much more skilled goal to score)

How a certain 'all-star' didn't make this list is beyond me.

Jarome Iginla is on the list? Maybe that'll make his value go down.

He was the best player in the NHL before crosby arrived. in a span of three seasons he lead the league in goals for two of the three seasons, nominated for the hart twice (one of which he was robbed by mtl media so that jose theodore could win) and won the pearson.

He may be overrated THIS season but lets not forget that he scored 43 goals and had 86 points last season. He is a great player and this list has some players that everyone will agree with and some will clearly disagree with
