I think...in some cases because they are such an OP class...that some people lose the skill needed to play the class well.
The only thing overpowered about druids is 2v2 arena. That's it. They have no unaccounted for advantages in any other aspect of the game. As PVE DPS they are mediocre (decent with gear). As group healers they're as good as anyone else. As tanks they are decent. As BG healers or DPSers they are decent. As raid healers they are decent but not as good as shaman.
Don't look at class balance with tunnel vision. Just because a druid shapeshifted and ran off while you were in WSG doesn't mean the entire class is overpowered. If their greatest ability is to run away well, you shouldn't need to worry too much.

Exactly. Anyone who's played a druid quickly loses any preconceptions of overpowered-ness when they realize that you can't do everything people say you can.
