I find Kovalchuck overrated.

He doesn't blow me away.

I guess you must have missed the part where he finished first in the west in points playing with gritty #1 center David Bolland.

I find most prospects incredibly overrated or overhyped. As for players... Tavares, maybe. I like him but some people take it too far.

This is the exact reason that people defend him. He played the best hockey of his career before he was injured last season. He won best D man at the world juniors at 18 then had two unreal seasons as a 19 and 20 year old d man in the NHL then finally broke out at 21. Its not like it was a fluke year at 21 it was just him putting on some weight and using his skill set more effectively. P.S I don't think anyone thinks he is the best d man since orr not even the biggest of homer sens fans.

As for overrated players only one really comes to mind, Komarov definitely gets that label 'best pest in the league' except he doesn't score or fight....

I think people around here just love to hate on players not many guys are actually that overated.

Zach Smith on the sens is fairly overated, he is very lazy, doesn't hit or score anymore.

The only reason he led the western conference in points was definitely because of Dave Bolland.

To me, for the high profile players, overrated means that they are thought of as being one of the top players at their position when they in fact are not. Karlsson, IMO, is one of the top defenceman so I wouldn't say he's the most overrated. He won the Norris the year before last and was injured most of last year. I could see someone saying he was somewhat overrated but it's hard to argue that he's the most. He's pretty darn good! Same with Toews. He may be overrated but probably not the most.

i find tavares on here get's overrated slightly, toews as well

don't get me wrong tavares is a great player but it seems there's many people who pencil tavares around 5-6th best player in the league and i just don't think he's quite there yet.

recently subban and karlsson have been getting alot of love too, the thing with them is they are still young and i'm not sure that they've hit their peaks as players that said i can't agree with calling either player the best defenceman in the league. there's a chance they could both take step back say the following year and then everybody would be okay right they're more in the 6-10 range of players (D), i need to see continued results of what they've done recently to justify having them top 5 imo.

on the case of datsyuk i don't think he's overrated in a general sense, i even had him as the third best player in the league behind crosby and ovechkin 2-3 years ago, and it's not that his game has declined it's just malkin/stamkos and other are pushing for conversation to the party. but the few people who think his defensive play makes him the best player in the league, well , i can't agree with that either.

You won't find many fans in the central saying he's overrated, you know since we see him play.

Kovalev. I don't care what he does in practice, during the game is the true test of a player.
