Most overrated players in the nhl

The reason this is not OT is because we are ever so fortunate so have someone in the top 5
but number 1 will all make us smile

Dion Phaneuf is the most overrated NHLer, according to a poll of his NHL peers by Sports Illustrated.
While not scientific in nature, it reveals what his competition thinks about the defender. And stats do back up the claim. Phaneuf has zero goals in 21 games with Toronto and just 29 points in 76 games this season. That is down from 47 points last year and 60 the year before that. Not a good trend. New York Ranger Wade Redden ranked second on the list, former Ranger Scott Gomez was third and current Ranger Sean Avery is fourth. Edmonton's Shawn Horcoff rounds out the top five.

I think this fanbase overrates Halak too much. Markov and Hamrlik too.

He was fast, and was making plays before. He's slowed down considerably but if he brings it in the POs, I wouldn't mind 4.5/yr. Otherwise, he shouldn't even dream of getting anything higher than 4m.

69pts, 39ts and ~70pts in his last three seasons = 3.75-4.25/yr

I would say Chris Drury is about as over rated as the new upcoming Halo Movie.

I'm not sure we still overrate Hamrlik. I think most knowledgeable Habs fans agree that he blows right now. I agree with the other 2.

Nope, "he's our most reliable defenseman, he's a rock on the back end!!" is still the general consensus. I made a thread about it today actually, we'll just see what's up.

I don't know, if stajan got 3.5mil, pleky will easily fetch that. Unless there was a that I missed.

If anything, I think Pleks is underrated but that's another discussion.

I think we don't even overrate him. Everyone is questioning whether he will be a franchise goalie or not. When you look outside the habs forum, the majority believe he is still a top goalie prospect.

Agree with everyone in that category, but Miller is definetely not overrated...he`s slightly underrated IMO.

I read it was Luongo the #1 most overrated as voted by his peers...
Did we read the same thing?

I have always said Phaneuf.

Fleury is definitely overrated. Maybe Nabokov as well.
