I always thought Bieksa was still one of those "best kept secret" underrated players. How'd he get 4 votes? Bert and Yashin I can understand.

Why would anyone want to play for the Leaves???
Who would not want to play with Crosby, EVEN if you had to live in Pitsburg??
How would Luongo and Broduer ever find themselves on a list Title "Over-rated"??

simple,

the 15 year man voted for Luongo, Brodeur's backup voted for Brodeur.

because if you went to pitts, as a center, you would get near no ice time. As a winger, you'd get near no ice time. As a defensemen, you'd have huge minusus, as a goalie, you don't get to play either.

play for the Leaves, everyone talks about you, and you get to sign over-rated contracts! like Bryan McCabe, a walking pylon, and Leaves fans thinks he's lidstrom!
This signature hates SOB as much as the guy who wrote this signature.
