Datysuk underrated? have you been to HF the last few years beyond the Boards section?

A lot of people discount him because of the way he came up onto a Cup winner without having established himself early in his NHL career.

No one discounts Datsyuk, he's the most overrated player on the main board compared to how everyone over there ****'s on Toews any chance they get.

Some Red Wings fans are so insufferable.

I thought Dats had cured cancer by the way the main board reads most of the time....

John Anderson is back with the Wolves to win titles and destroy Blues' prospects in the process.

Can't believe even one hawks fan here is saying Datsyuk is "overrated" (that's such a meaningless word IMO).

Datsyuk has made a career out of being one of the most complete players in the world. There is nothing he can't do.

such as here...where people toss it around without saying why he's supposedly overrated.

and lol @ whoever above was saying that Ovechkin was 'overrated' here...considering there were people on the mainboard claiming he was no longer a 'top 15' forward in the league anymore a few months ago.

Haven't you heard that Datsyuk cured cancer? He can even walk on water

No but I have heard he's an elite two way center who has won multiple Selke trophies, has (arguably) the best hands in the league, and gives you 70 points a season.

Nobody ever says he's the best player in the world but he's definitely an elite player and is/should be viewed as one by most hockey fans. As a hawks fan, who got to see him play against our team A LOT, you should feel the same way

A lot of people also say he's the best two-way forward.


He may be underrated in the public, but on here he's widely regarded as some sort of legendary player.

We will see how that works out when there is no revenue to support it. Sure, these billionaires will throw some $$ for ego but things can change quickly. Contracts are not guaranteed over there, countless stories of pay checks bouncing..ect.

Might as well begin the transition...

Live in NJ (so yes, I went thru the Kovy-saga and now the Kovy-Saga 2.0), but will be going to school in the Chicago area, so call me a bandwagoning, fair-weather fan if you'd like. Have lots of family in the area, so I've always called Chicago my #2 team, but its worth making it 'official' and following the team closely.

Hello everyone.

You're correct - didn't realize there are other programs in the area. Woops.

Just reading thru the last few pages, why are so many people concerned with Hossa leaving the NHL? It seems to me that he's made it clear he is chasing Stanley Cups.

Northwestern has a pretty good football team now... Well at least by Big Ten standards
