You made a mistake adding Luongo in this poll...

I'd just like to know what he's ever accomplished? Apparently he's better than Marty Brodeur.

I wouldn't call Zetterberg overrated. Unlike the other options in this poll, he's actually accomplished something .

I voted for Gaborik, the "50 goal scorer!"

"The best goalie" ever to never win a damn thing, either for his team or individually would be second.

Wait, hockey doesn't involve a team?

Actually, I would regard none of these players overrated. Not a single one of them.

Maybe - and that's a stretch - Gaborik because there are some that do a little too much of projecting his numbers for full seasons, but even in his case: everybody who has half a working brain knows how to deal with his strengths and weaknesses.

No surprise the goaltender is winning the poll since there is nothing in hockey even majorities among fans know less about than goaltending.

Ya, I didn't expect him to get that many votes, he's really just in the poll because some people say he's better than Ovechkin, Malkin, and Crosby because he plays better defensively than the afore mentioned trio. He's actually won the Cup and a Conn Smythe. And I guess you didn't hear, Gaborik's a 60 goal scorer now.

So you think Luongo is better than Brodeur?

Where did you read that? He was just saying the "He has not won anything!" argument is ridiculous - which it is.

And it absolutely would not be too far-fetched to consider Luongo a better goaltender than Brodeur at this point. (No, I'm no Canucks fan.)

For me it's Zetterberg. He's a fine player but when he goes into head-to-head polls with Crosby, Iginla, etc and wins it makes me laugh.

If he traded places and career opportunities with a Havlat, Gaborik or Kovalchuck he wouldn't perform any better in their situations than the mentioned players and Detroit would still have all the success and cups with the other guys. We wouldn't be seeing a 90+ pt selke candidate in any other situation.

That being said, I still think that Chris Drury is the most over-rated player in the history of internet message boards.

I don't think any of these guys are overrated. If you want someone who is overrated, add Luke Schenn.

Gaborik. He's a 50-goal sniper when he scores 50 goals in a season.

This poll is terrible. Kane is definitely the most overrated on the list.

Toews is also slightly overrated, but atleast he plays a solid two way game.
Luongo is a top 2 goalie in the entire world, no doubt about that.
Zetterberg doesnt belong on the list even.
Gaborik is uber injury prone, but when healthy is an elite forward.

Kane can dangle, but thats it. He's small and doesnt play well defensively. When he's not scoring, he's not helping. Kane is an easy choice.

I think Kanga is better than Luongo. Why? No reason, I mean it is not like I have anything to back it up...

Overrated means someone without any accomplishments is ranked above someone who does. Look at the other goalie polls here. Everyone seems to always vote Luongo #1. Based on what? Number of wins? Save %? or just a feeling?

What has he done to warrant such a ranking?
