The Habs have had quite a few in my lifetime that deserve consideration:

Kirk Muller
Mario Tremblay
Bob Gainey
Brian Skrudland
Guy Carbonneau
Mike Mcphee
Mike Keane
Ryan Walter
Serge Savard
Doug Risebrough
Doug Jarvis
Chris Nilan
Sergei Berezin

Guy Carbonneau for sure. I'm surprised that he came only 3 times in this forum. He is the father of the blocked shot and all around player. He is the hardest worker that I've seen in my life.

Buchburger is very close....he is the hardest worker in this moment with over 1000 games played and his 100 goals.

Buchberger for sure. Kirk Muller, Mike Keane, Kevin Dineen to name a couple of others.

Some excellent nominations, including Buchberger (9th round pick, nearly 1200 games) and the Sutters. I am surprised, however, that no one has bothered to mention Gordie Howe. The man played until he was 51!

Not to knowck a great majority of the players mentioend above, but it's a bit ridiulous that some of the games greats haven't been mentioned.

What made players like Gretzky, Orr, Clarke, Bourque, etc. etc. is that every game was important, every game they strove to and demanded greatness from themselves.

Well I think the majority of the players named in this thread are the ones that, when you think "hard work" you think of them. It's what defined them. They're the ones that made it with limited talent, but limitless heart. Hard Work isn't what comes first to mind when you think of Gretzky, Orr etc., although it was a big part of their game, their talent is what people remember most.

Have to say Steve Yzerman. Not only did he have a strong work ethic on the ice game in and game out but he also worked harder than any other player to change his game to help his team win.

Mike Keane deserved a mention.

Gainey MUST be high on every list.

McKay is OFF the Radar from a Montreal Fan point of view. Perhaps he was with the Devils, but he was not working at all with the Habs and i dont think you gonna find a lot of Mtl Fans to argue with that.

May seem a biased but whatever.. Mike Richter.

Played through multiple injuries, (one that would eventually stop him from playing professional hockey anymore. ) and still tried his hardest and gave nothing but his heart and dedication to his team.


-- Eric Lindros is another player.. but I'm not really sure. I mean, he's had 7-8 concussions and other injuries and still manages to have a great career.

What does that have to do with being hardworking? Yzerman isn't even close to the top.

The question of who is hardest working is unanswerable. What do you mean by hard working? How do you know when someone is working as hard as he can?

If I hate to pick a good candidate, though, I'd rate the hardest working player as Jagr, at least the young Jagr. His training programme was legendary: 500 sit ups a day, running up and down stadium seats for hours, etc.

Dallas Drake. Not a lot of scoring touch, but one tough and hard working checker. Not bad for a guy that is about 5'10.

Anyone notice that this list contains a lot of grinders?

Grinder types came to mind automatically, for me. Guys who were able to carve out a nice NHL career while being limited in talent.

Completely OT, but I've got an autographed Dallas Drake fishing lure, a Savvis give-away obtained on a road trip to watch the CBJ play the Blues. That in itself makes Drake "hard-working", to me.

Funny Buchberger moment.

While playing for Phoenix Kelly challenged someone in a game by saying "Hey, wanna win a fight?"

He was never much of a fighter but always willing to drop. I remember one Kings games when he challenged Reed Low. Kelly got hammered to say the least.

Jonathan Cheechoo. Started late, is catching up quickly (skating) and he never gives up on a play either. Hence his between his legs goal in the PO's against COL. I think his committment level can only be matched.
