Is Hedman overrated?
Not really he is a stud ,there are about 10 or so defenders that can be considered norris calibre.And he is one of them
Boy it's a good thing you gave some context rather than just a generic thread....oh wait.
Maybe a bit. But he does look cool. He'd make a cool addition to Vikings.
just like when Leafs fan ask about Matthews,
Oiler's fans about McDavid,
Senator's fans about Karlsson,
Jacket's fans about Werenski.
No. He has a legitimate claim to being the best in the league.
Depends on who you ask. I think he can be a little overrated defensively, especially by those who think hes a better overall defenseman than Karlsson because of it. He's been inconsistent at times in his career. I also don't think people should expect 70 point seasons going forward. He's still in the discussion for 2nd best defenseman in the game though
According to who...you?... yes
Not sure how good he is defensively, but offensively he's definitely very potent.
It'll be interesting to see if he can maintain 70+ points.
One of these is not like the others
Jet's fans about Hatrik Laine.
When fans claim that he is the best defenceman in the NHL, then yes, he is overrated.
#65 is *clearly* superior in almost every way.
He has zero claim to that actually.
Two of those are not like the others.
Karlsson fans underrate him.
He is better defensively than Karlsson, imho.
I've never seen even Karlsson homers say Karlsson is ebtter defensively. The most they said is Karlsson had a better defensive 2016-2017 but overall Hedman is better defensively, which has a lot of validity, even if it's still debatable and arguable overall.
Not even a little bit.
Hedman's a lot of things. Over rated isn't one of them. Guy is among the top 5-10 defensemen in the league.
Overrated? No. I think most people consider him one of the top 5ish dmen in the league, which I think he is. Properly rated.
Yes. He has yet to fly over buildings in a single bound, make permanent peace in the Middle East, or make Raisin Biscuits available in stateside Tim Hortons.
I'm a massive Karlsson fan and I've been high on Hedman since he was drafted.
Could win a Norris in the right season.
I'd say that's fairly rated.
I suspect the OP has some sort of sulking agenda with this thread though.
No... But he could realistically have had his best season, too. Unlikely, but possible.
Scroll up bud. People are pretty much doing it in this thread. It's hard for Karlsson sycophants to admit that he's not perfect in every way, so you gotta read between the lines. If the topic even comes up they start twitching like the 7 minute abs guy.
no, I just saw some of my bros on discord say that hedman is at most the 3rd best dman in the league and isn't like a top 15 player
Nope. He is a beast and one of the best in the game in my opinion.
I think there are a handful of people who can have the best season as a defenceman in the league.
But that's different than a ranking of defencemen overall.
There are a lot of variables that factor into whether the season ranking corresponds with the overall ranking.
One thing I'll say about Hedman is that there aren't too many people out there who outright dislike him.
So enjoy that.
