A poll of appromimately 1/3 of NHL Players deemed former Flame 'Double' Dion Phaneuf as the hockey's most overrated player. Apparently, the hype surrounding his booming shot that doesn't hit the net 97.3% of the time, vicious attempts to decapitate weaker opponents on open ice (therefore putting him out of position), and defensive zone awareness as nonchalant as Alexander Semin has started to rub some of his peers the wrong way. The icing on the cake may be related to envy- he's dating B-list celebrity hottie Elisha Cuthbert. Obviously, jealousy of Dion's hockey and social abilities runs rampant in professional hockey. Also of note in the article: Craig Conroy fully supports Dion as both a player and a person, which one wouldn't expect from the guy whose wife was (allegedly) defiled by the former EA Sports NHL video game cover boy. Either it didn't happen, or Dion is just THAT great of a guy!
