DAILY PRIME - AUGUST 21, 2013: CENTRAL DIVISION- OVERRATED, UNDERRATED primepucks.com Wed 8/21/13 8:52 AM

Chicago Blackhawks: Overrated: Brent Seabrook One 40+ point season in his 8-year career. Will most likely lose top power-play time to Nick Leddy. Underrated: Patrick Sharp Prior to injury-plagued 2012/13 campaign, scored 67 goals in two seasons. Consistent scoring threat. Colorado Avalanche: Overrated: Erik Johnson        Still waiting for the former overall no.1 pick to live up to his potential. Huge fantasy bust. Underrated: P.A. Parenteau His 43 points in 48 games proved he doesn't need John Tavares. Borderline point-per-game producer. Dallas Stars: Overrated: Alex Goligoski    Don't get me wrong. Should be a lock for 40, but this d-man is not consistent enough to warrant fantasy elite status. Underrated: Jamie Benn     Move to wing and chance to play with Tyler Seguin could result in breakout season. Minnesota Wild: Overrated: Dany Heatley No longer the sure-fire 40-50 goal scorer, but has settled in as a decent secondary threat. Parise is clearly the Wild's best LW. Underrated: Mikko Koivu Not an elite point-producer, but could flourish while playing with Parise in Year 2. 70-75 point upside if he stays healthy. Nashville: Overrated: None With the exception of Pekka Rinne and Shea Weber, there shouldn't be any other high-rated fantasy options in Nashville. Underrated: Shea Weber The Predators have a tough time scoring, but don't let that fool you. Finished strong last season with 27 points in last 35 games. Absolutely, an elite fantasy option on defense. St. Louis: Overrated: Derek Roy Has not been the same since coming back from a torn quadricep surgery in 2010. No longer a point-per-game scoring threat. Underrated: Alex Pietrangelo His 24 points last season is not a true reflection of his fantasy worth. The addition of defensive Jay Bouwmeester should allow the highly talented blueliner to have the "green light" on the scoring end. Could surpass his career-high of 51 points in 13/14. Winnipeg: Overrated: Olli Jokinen The 34-year old has lost his elite scoring touch, but needs to provide a physical presence for this young, but talented Jets squad. Underrated: Zach Bogosian The skilled defenseman is one Byfuglien or Enstrom injury away from becoming very fantasy relevant. Watch him.
