I would say Bergie has been one of the most disappointing, but overrated?
How could anyone have had him rated that high to begin with?
Did you not watch the second half of the season last year?
You could have had high hopes (as I did) but not dead on expectations that equate to a rating.
On this team…most overrated….Jackman.
Sure there are tons of candidates, but the front office and the media praise him more than any of the other candidates (Boyes, Kariya, Brewer,)
Another candidate may be Oshie. I think he’s played hard, but the local (fans/media) would have you believe he’s a superstar. I guess it depends on how you define ‘over-rated)
Along with Johnson, Berglund was touted as being a can't miss. He was supposed to be better than Oshie & Perron...but he's been the worst of all of them...and it's not even close. The hype behind Berglund was way more than it should have been. Hence the reason he was overrated.
You think Oshie is overrated? The kid is a beast on the ice. The fans love him and like to watch him play... and they are vocal about it...I think you have that confused with them thinking he is a superstar. He's just a huge fan favorite, and rightfully so. It seems like he's all over the ice every shift of every game. He throws his body around, skates his ass off and creates a ton of buzz on the ice. What's not to like? He gets the fans excited. It would be nice if he could finish a little more, but that may come with more experience. We'll see.
As far as Berglund goes, sometimes I get done watching a game and I'm like..."Did Berglund even play?" Most of the time Berglund is invisible out there and does absolutely nothing. Have you ever said that about Oshie? I just don't get what people see in him right now. Sure, he'll have a decent shift once in a while, but those are few and far between for anyone to get excited about.
Right now, I am 100 times more excited about the future of Oshie and Perron than I am about Berglund. I hope he comes around, but I just don't see it happening any time soon.
