Hardest working player ever

Who is the hardest working player in history in your eyes? Keep in mind his stats don't have to be so big. Just a honest hard worker who gave more than 100% every night. My pick for the hardest worker had go to be Kelly Buchberger. I don't think there is one man who worked as hard as him. Great leader to bad he didn't have any skill. I wonder what would have happened if he had the skill level of Daigle. Was never an offensive dynamo, but played well over 1,000 career games.

I'd go with Kelly Buchberger. He made a very solid career out of very little natural talent...

Clarke, Robert Earl........couldn't skate fast, had an even slower shot, small by any era's standards......but, R-E-L-E-N-T-L-E-S-S on the ice.
Check his career stats, awards.

My Nominee from the Blues would be Brian Sutter. He should make this list.

Can't argue with that pick. He has no real skills to speak of but was one of the best captains in the NHL for years.

Most definetly, and if you think about there have been a ton over the years from the Devils, Scott Stevens, Claude Lemiuex, Bobby Holik, Brian Gionta, John Madden, Joe Nieuwendyk, Jay Pandolfo, etc,.....

I'm not saying we have had more hard working players than others teams, but when c-carp mentioned another Devil I started to think about them all and it kinda hit me, I mean we have always had good talent but not great, hard work is what gotten us our success so it only makes sense.

And Martin Brodeur of course.

I was thinking him before I came into the thread. I've gotta mention Trent Klatt, Martin St. Louis, and Mark Messier as well.

cant say ever for me, because there is a lot of hockey that i have not seen. but, from the time i started watching hockey, i would have to say that the stand-out hardest working player for me is Guy Carbonneau.

Right now I am really impressed with the effort Sami Kapanen gives the Flyers on a daily basis, but Shjon Podein would be my pick.

Darcy Tucker is a very hard working player. To do as much as he has with his lack of natural skating ability is quite impressive. Its impossible to determine a winner for this.

Take any of the NHL Sutters.... nobody can match their work ethic. Hard work is what their life has been based on ever since their upbringings in a farm. They dont know how to do anything any other way than to work their behinds off.

I think Kelly Buchberger is a great choice. He could make the HOF on merit, leadership, and balls alone. No one could argue that he didnt do the best with what he had.

I lost all respect for Brian Sutter's work ethic when it became the focal point of his coaching. Instead of teaching players a system or strategy, he just roughs them up and tells them "work harder!"

Cam Neely...not only did he bring the lunchpail mentality to his game, but he had above average skills as well; a deadly combo.

I can't believe I'm the first to mention Dan Hinote

Kelly Buchberger is also a great choice, I also am just going to mention Steve Moore. Not trying to start anything, I will just give him his credit for keeping at it and making it all the way to the NHL.
