IMO the whole Detroit Red Wings team is overrated. Lidstrom is only good because of Zetterberg, Zetterberg is only good because of Lidstrom and the system makes them all better than they really are. Zetterberg is the best two-way forward in the world. Live with it, embrace it, accept it.

I went with 'other'. No one on that list is overrated. It's Sundin for me that's an overrated player IMO. He's good but far from the super star he's often made out to be.

Kostitsyns. Just because he and his brother survived the Chernobyl disaster doesn't make them good.

Sundin has hit 70+ points since 1996 (the only reason he didn't hit it the year before was he was uncharacteristically injured). Only TWO years in his career has he hit less than 70 points actually, and one was his rookie year, the other he only played in 47 games (and had 47 points).

Can somebody please tell me how this can possibly be considered as overrated? If overrated means one of the most (if not the most) consistent players in the current NHL year after year playing at a very high level-then yes you're absolutely right.

You're terribly misinformed. I don't think any Kings' fan in the world believes that Frolov is better than one of Ottawa's big three.

I suggest you stay up past your bed time to watch some Kings' games, though. Your ignorance is staggering.

Oh and there pops the excuse out again, "You don't know because Kings games are too late for you to watch so you must know nothing about our players"

I have already told you I stay up to watch the Kings play Colorado almost every game with my brother, it isn't that late where I used to live, 9:00PM start - 11:30 finish

And yes I can't quite remember the name of the thread but some Kings fans said that because Frolov is so good defensively they would take him over Spezza or Heatley not Alfie though, I guess you guys aren't too (Fill in the blank)

How The HELL is Heatley Overrated? he's easily one of the Top 10 Players in the League. Rick Nash is a Little overrated but hes a fantastic player. But to be honest with you bro,none of the players on your list are really overrated.

San Jose doesn't allow many shots per game. Goalies who only face 15-20 shots a game will generally have low Save %s. If he had a high Save% his GAA would be like 1. Other than GAA, Nabby has Brodeur beat in every goaltending category. It isn't like Brodeur was top 5 either in Save Percentage.

Also San Jose wouldnt've been good without Nabby. Everyone on their team but Thornton struggled offensively. Only JT and Mickalak hit 50pts. Their D was also anchored by Rivet, Vlasic, Ehrhoff and DOUG MURRAY.

At least we are smart enough not to base an entire organization's fans based upon 1-2 stupid posters unlike you seem to be doing. I'm glad that there are one or two idiots on our forums just as there are on yours with the difference that you can't differentiate from them or form an opinion on the greater amount. Should add Meszaros as I have seen a Sens fan say he is worth more than Kopitar/Frolov since thats how we are putting people on this list.

If anything, Kaberle is underrated. I mean... have you watched him play?

I'm a Habs fan, but I would take Kaberle any day of the week, before any of our D-Man. Before Markov? Well it's arguable but I think I'd even take him before Markov.

Wow, you watch a grand total of four Kings' games a year where you used to live. I'm impressed.

And you obviously don't know a thing about any Kings' player considering you think Kopitar and Frolov are overrated. If anything, they don't get enough attention because they play on a west coast, non-playoff team. If either played for the Senators, they'd be superstars. Especially Kopitar.

How Frolov ends up on a list of options of overrated players is beyond me let alone that he has some people who have voted for him.
