I've never been a "star" on any team I've played (I like to characterize my playing style as Hal Gill, great when it comes to defense/PK/5on3 PK, pilon in other situations), but my teammates have always appreciated the enthusiasm I have, even from the bench.
Every team needs a guy or two like that.
i agree, i actually started using this mentality with my kids at home. we have a new rule that no one gets ice cream or treats after supper unless everyone eats their food. at first they didnt really get it but just last night my 2.5year old offered to eat my 5 year olds corn because he doesnt like it. I split it in half and they finished all the food. i was proud of them and we all got to have strawberrys to dip in yogurt. I think its a valuable thing to have to encourage teamwork.
