General statement, but yeah, I probably wouldn't call a 5-time All-Star underrated.

I think the correct answer to this question has to cause at least a good portion of posters to respond, "ah, blah, he sucks." Another portion barely knows who the player is. And the final group see him as an invaluable leader for his team.

Zetterberg. I'd take him over anyone other than Sid.

I don't think Tavares gets as much spotlight as he should get. NYI not playing so well keeps him kind of hidden. His stats are up there and anywhere else on a team that was any good he would be hailed in the elite class of players.

Nobody knows who he is, but he's one of the best two-way defensemen in the NHL.

I think people might find out who he is in late February of 2014. He might be playing in some pretty big games then.

When we were playing the "You're the GM" game and thinking of trade offers for Letang before his extension, I brought up his name in two separate threads.

Vlasic + Cotoure for Letang + whatever.

I think I just heard Doug Wilson snickering.

That may have been true two years ago, but he was a Hart Trophy finalist last season and is well recognized as an elite player by now.
