As the hockey season starts very soon I'll start a new thread, without NHL in the title, so everyone can discuss what they want regarding hockey; especially the upcoming Olympics. Rookie of the year? I should be incredibly biased towards Victor Hedman, since he's from my team, but honestly I think he's overrated, and I've seen many many games he's played. I don't think he's ready for the NHL yet to be honest. I cannot say much about Tavares since I've only seen him at the world juniors. Anyone seen much of him? This is interesting because I've heard from many people that Tavares is a bit overrated too, even though I thought he was good in the world juniors.
