Most idiots STILL don't know who he is.

I have never disputed he is one of if not the best player in the world. There's other reasons people hate him.

Win.

Although it's nice to see Sharp on there for being underrated. At least we all know how good he is.

Although I don't think Pavel "I look more like a Child Molester than Danny Briere" Datsyuk is not underrated. I think most would know he is that good and not marginalize him--same with Suter, Kopitar, and St. Louis.

How can Briere look like a child molester? He looks like a child.

Maybe it's just his playoff beard, but he had the look of a kiddie-fiddler to me. He looks like he would drive a broken ice cream truck.

Iginla overrated? Which non 500 goal scores are jealous?

Not sure if kopitar is underrater seeing every team bitches about not drafting him higher. He has been compared to Malkin by a number of hockey people and players. That's not being under-rated.

Fun list regardless. Wish we knew which player said what.

Not sure I agree with Phaneuf being the most overrated, also not sure why Kesler is on that list. Pronger? Iginla? Ovechkin?

I don't think these guys are overrated at all. They got 5 out of 10 right though.

Also not sure Giroux is underrated anymore. St. Louis, Datsyuk, Ericsson, Kopitar, Parise... these are big names they are throwing out there, how underrated can they possibly be if they are considered top 30 players without a doubt?

To me that underrated list should be more guys such as Jordan Eberle, Dan Girardi, David Backes, Kris Versteeg, Jason Pomminville, Brian Campbell.

Bingo. Agree 100%. Time and time again he proves how important he is to teams once he leaves them (the short stint in San Jose comes into question things in San Jose are always tricky thanks to the no shows). Buffalo has never been able to replace that guy since he left and we are seeing the hole on our own blueline with him gone. Lord knows he is the bread and butter of the Florida team this season also. Def under-rated in the sense that he should be up there in talks with the best blueliners in the game currently. He never is.

Have to agree that Iginla is far from overrated. For quite some time he has been very intregal to the Flames, and no 500 goal scorer can be overrated IMO.
