Steven McDonald Extra Effort Award

I'd say either Callahan (again) or Prust.

I think Prust should win. But Callahan will probably get it since he owns that trophy.

Prust, Stepan, Boyle, and Anisimov are the only players to appear in every game this year. With Prust admittedly playing hurt for a number of games, I think that might sway the vote in his favor.

Prust > Higgins & Kotalik

Love how this trade worked out.

Prust for me. Guy's played through how many injuries this season and never given less than 110%.

They could rename it the "Ryan Callahan award"!


This year though I think Prust should get the award, while Cally should get the "C". It's time!

yea Prust, dude was a 4th liner but he's showing he is more, leading the league in PK goals when I would'nt of even of though of him as a PKer to start the yr. Plus he is banged up and still goes out there every night

I though about Sauer too given he came out of no where and not only made the team but is a top 4 Dman now. Props to him and alot of guys on the team for atleast grinding hard

I'm on the fence.

Prust is the easy choice - the guy works extremely hard and through many injuries.

But I also think Brian Boyle deserves it. The guy worked his BUTT off this season to get to where he is. From being a guy who wasn't even going to make the team to one of our top goal scorers is a very impressive feat. He's come a looooooong way.

So if Boyle or Prust get it, I'll be happy.

I couldnt agree with this more. Prust is absolutely deserving especially with everything he does for this team, however Boyle putting all that time in in the off season to and becoming the player he has been all year, worked his ass off, I think he is just as deserving.

I have to go with Prust, but in another thread on this I brought up Girardi too. He is rather quietly having a fantastic season.

Really??? Those three have had their slumps and disappeared throughout the season IMO. Prust is the only one out of that group that shows up every game. I'd say Prust,Callahan and Sauer show up every game. That's about it... I vote for Prust

I meant that those four players are the only ones that have literally played in every game this year, which is a compliment to Prust for appearing in every game despite being injured. Plus, I'm sure everyone remembers Stepan taking a month off after that hat trick, and Anisimov being Kovalev-esque at times.

Settle down...There's no disrespect to Stephen McDonald there. Just pointing out how much effort Cally puts forth.

Yeah.

Callahan, as everyone knows, pretty much wins no matter what.

..so I'd say give to Boyle...if it weren't for BRANDON ****ING PRUST.

Prust, Cally, and Boyle could/should share the award.

No disrespect to Callahan, who has won the award 2 years straight (I think), but Prust clearly wins the award this year. He went from being a throwaway in a trade to one of our top PK guys, leads the league in SH goals, plays a tenacious, gritty game, will fight anyone regardless of size, reach, or weight, and has been playing through injuries for most of the season and still looks like the most energetic guy on the ice.

Callahan and Boyle would also be great choices, and Sauer wouldn't be a bad choice either, though Sauer didn't really come out of nowhere. He's been NHL ready for the past 2 years, but a certain albatross (Redden) kept him off the roster because of his contract.

Frolov! Oh wait wrong award that's wrap arounds.
I think you overreacted a bit there. We all know the story and the guy behind the award but geez it was suggested in a joking manner and meant to reference how often Cally wins it.

I say Prust Sauer and Boyle. prust gets it. Cally not far behind.in 4th

Girardi, Staal, Prust, Sauer, Cally.

Girardi or Staal cause they log huge amounts of ice time, have been so so solid at such a young age while always throwing their bodies in harms way. We'd be nowhere without those two and our all star goalie.

I'd say Boyle or Prust. At some point do we stop considering what Callahan does as extra effort because it is the type of game he plays?

Just a thought.

Girardi would be a great choice. I think leading the league in blocked shots. over 200 is going beyond the call.He also has a lot of hits.He also plays injured. The guys is so underappreciated.
