I don't think any of those players are overrated. May I ask why you do?

Oddly enough, all the players on your list are very underrated, except maybe Nash and Kopitar.

He is not God as this board makes him out to be. A very good player yes, but after winning the cup he's gotten really overrated on these boards. Same thing happened with Getzlaf last year.

Actually i'd probably change my vote from Zetterberg to Campbell now that I think about it.

There I agree with you 100%. I forgot about Campbell too. He's good but definitely not 7 million good.

As an Ottawa fan, you couldnt be more wrong, Alfie is far and away our best player. He is a star at both ends of the ice, plays PK, can QB a PP, and he wears his heart on his sleeve.

If anything our most overrated player would be Heatley, but only when playing with Spezza cuz he gets to comfortable waiting for the feed and not being a complete player like he can be.

I think both are overrated, Zetterberg is going to get my vote though because he is viewed as a top 3-5 talent in the NHL and while he is great i dont think he is that good, i think he benefits as much from the system as the system benefits from him. All of the players listed were in my opinion underrated.

None of those players are overrated. I might be crazy but I think the Sedins are overrated.

Now that you say this, I do appreciate Alfredsson

My point with him is that there are only 3 players in hockey that I would pay more than 9 million a year, and thats Crosby Ovechkin and Lidstrom

Do you ever even watch the Sens play? The guy is arguably the hardest working player in the league. He does absolutely everything for the Sens. He can score, pass, skate, defend and kill penalties....Alfredsson is underrated not overrated. And when people say that Spezza and Heatley are the best players on the Sens, there wrong. It's Alfredsson. I wish the Oilers had a player half of what Alfredsson is.

I think Malkin is a tad overrated. I only need to read one of the many threads about him where countless people said he is the best player on his team. The same said he's better than AO. He is not the best player in hockey. Top 10 no doubt , but not even close to as good as AO or Crosby.
