Most Underrated NHL Players

The Top Ten

1 Tomas Plekanec

Tomas Plekanec is not only the leader in awesomeness he is also a great leader and very skilled player, a great asset to the already great Montreal team. He is maybe even the better than Saku Koivu.

Elite two way center, has amazing hockey sense and bursts in speed. Very well compare in the defensive zone and can significantly change a game by shutting down the opposition's best forwards. Underrated = understatement he is ignorently disregarded.

Best Jack of all trades, One of the best PK man, Great at PP, makes all players around him look good, Very consistent production year over year, has one of the highest ATOI among forwards and also usually faces opposing teams best lineup.

He is amazing he leads montreal to the playoffs every year
