Who do you think is the most overrated player in the league?
I think Dustin Brown is overrated, still very talented obviously but the constant praise this summer might be a bit much.

20 points in the playoffs (tied for 1st in playoffs with Kopitar), +16, several game changing hits, kills penalties and plays on the PP.

He was a force in the postseason. As the captain of the Cup winning team he's going to get a lot of attention but I haven't heard anyone make it sound like he's Gretzky or anything.

Off the top of my head my vote would be Fleury. A talented but inconsistent goalie. What good is a highlight reel save when you let in a backbreaking softie a few minutes later?

I think he probably put him in there because next season he'll disappear. Or at least I can see that happening somehow. No idea why though, just seems to fit. So wouldn't agree that he's overrated, but could be a flash in the pan (although he'll still be a good player, just not at the level of this cup winning season).

You forgot what he is most prolific at though....Diving. He's fighting with Ribiero for the title of "king of the flop".

I guess this is why I said Dustin Brown, I'm in BC so everyone either loves or hates the Canucks and everyone who hates them became Kings fans this year. They've been talking about him like he's top 5 in the league which imo he isn't. It's a lot like it was when Boston won and people were acting like Tim Thomas is some sort of god. As I said, I still think he's very good just not as good as some people are making him out to be.

Which is the definition of 'overrated' so I agree with you :)

I also said "he" though, but I was taking my lead from martinezsvsu :P

I believe the Kings were a fluke this year. They had a nice run but I still see them not winning their division and seeding lower than 6th next year. Just my opinion. Overrated: Fleury,Gaborik,Lundqvist(he's solid but totally worshiped and hasn't won anything yet so if he's king,what's Brodeur,God?) and Mike Green.

sorry im a brown fan, i dont think he will disappear next year, obviously he wont put up huge scoring numbers because he never has, i just think he plays hard and he has kopitar on his line so he should be fine. i didnt know everyone was so high on him that it makes him being considered over rated
