Hertl isn't really underrated. I'd give it to Ferraro.

Not sure if Slavin, Hertl, Chychrun, Debrincat would be considered underrated anymore - they're all really good and I think that's widely considered at this point.

Would replace with Pesce (still probably not underrated but more so than Slavin imo), Ferraro, Murphy/Dach (Dach to a lesser extend b/c I don't think he's underrated but maybe not as widely known), and idk for ARI, they just stink haha

I think this list is fairly accurate.

This for example I disagree with, Hertl is usually seens as a lower tier #1C while in reality he's closer to the top 10 than bottom 10 at least.

Kuraly, however, is pretty bad. Don't think Slavin or Demko is underrated. Kyle Connor is overrated, and both Chychrun and Pelech are viewed pretty accurately as really good defensemen. Rust is good but not much more. Not sure Blais is underrated, very average player.

But yeah, pretty fair list

Sharks fans at least and many pacific div fans are well aware that Hertl is one of the best Centers in the conference. If you're out east maybe you can think he's underrated but he is certainly not underrated in the West.

I think he's better than for example Barkov

I think Eller is valued about right by fans, maybe a bit underrated. For the Caps, I'd either say Kuznetsov (since people seem to think cocaine use = garbage abilities) or Dowd. Maybe Samsonov is in the conversation as well but he's more of a stretch than the other two.

In some ways I agree. When he's healthy he can take over games basically on his own. Kane doesn't get 30 a year without Tomas and maybe Eklund doesn't make the team.

Just gonna say the same thing. This guy just had a "down" year where he was on pace for 55 points... over the past 3 seasons he's scored 66 goals and 165 points, good for 40th best in the NHL. He can play multiple positions, he can kill penalties, he's a PP witch, he's out in late-game situations whether defending a lead or trying for the tying goal. He's not a superstar but but is really good at just about everything... on the Oilers roster he just completely fades into the background though.

Good pick.

I'd say there's a few Oilers that would qualify for this list, including Nurse and Puljujarvi. But Nuge is the right choice.

I would say Nurse if fairly rated, but I agree with the rest

Lots of posters here (I'd say the majority) think Nurse sucks though, so on this board I'd say he's underrated.

Yeah, but I also think Kane is worse than almost everyone. My biggest issue with the narrative is that Hertl is way better defensively but has almost no reputation of it, compared do Barkov.

Hertl is great defensively. But a guy who never gets attention for his defense in SJ is Logan Couture. He's been in top 10 in Selke voting 2-3 times but never gets much credit for it.
