    I find Handle to be incredibly underrated these days. Buff too. Patches overrated and Tavares ranked and discussed fairly.

    Patches nearly scored 40 goals this year. Buff is lazy, and I guess I kinda agree with you about Yandle.

    Yandle actually should have been on my list. Kids really improved and yes wasn't a top 10 3-4 years ago but arguably a top 20 defenseman.

    Patches is ranked fairly IMO. Dudes inconsistent and plays a selfish game at times. Defense is good, not great.

    Buff logs like 26 minutes a night, is a #1 defenseman in front of the worst starting goalie..I'm a huge fan. He's elite offensively. Putting him back at forward is a mistake

    Toews in for Yandle, but I am not changing my opinion on Byfuglien. Byfuglien easily has the skill set to be a top 15/20 defense men but is beyond lazy.

    Buffs a 18 to 30. He's flawed but so are many defenseman on the list. Factor in Pavelec would ya.

    I guess so I would still kill for Buff on my team. I agree with you on that aspect, him constantly switching around from RW to D is boggling.

    We should do an overrated / underrated for prospects. Gonna start that thread up.

    I think Semin has gone under the radar recently... I think the entire Canes team is underrated

    EDIT: do not use tinder to tear up minors, you will go to jail.

    Semin, like Big Buf, could be a much better hockey player imo.
