Phaneuf Overrated

from Paul Hunter of the Toronto Star,

Overrated? You want overrated, Dion Phaneuf will tell you about overrated.

Overrated is the emphasis onlookers put on goals – his goals; the ones that total zero since he arrived in Toronto 21 games ago – when the only thing that really matters to him is whether his Maple Leafs are improving and winning.

What also doesn’t matter to Phaneuf is a Sports Illustrated player poll that ranks him as the Most Overrated Player in the NHL. In its latest edition, the magazine asked 272 players in the league to name the player whose reputation exceeds their performance.

Phaneuf ran away with the title, capturing 21 per cent of the vote.
