I really like Kelly Buchburger. I was actually surprised that people thought of him right off the bat, just 'cause.... well... outside of Edmonton, people don't really talk about him much. Had the honor of meeting him off the ice... and he's a classy, classy guy too.

Theo was just a spark plug because he has little person's complex, he is more concerned about blaming everyone else for his problems than working hard himself to overcome them.

You mean Napoleon Complex... and the second part of your sentance has nothing to do with it or this thread. BTW "You mean Napoleon Complex" is "Nice guy" for "What, you can't spell Napoleon, tardo". Guess I'm just semi-nice now, but your post bothered me.

For sure Kelly Buchberger. And hats off to John Tonelli too. I remember watching him outwork TWO guys in the corners to get that puck...

All-time my pick would be Terrible Ted Lindsay. Here is his intro from the HHOF:

Quote:
Nicknames sometimes say a great deal about the person they are attached to. Ted Lindsay's moniker - "Terrible Ted" - tells only half of his story. Lindsay was indeed a rough, often mean competitor who spent more time in the penalty box than any player in his time. He was only 5'8" and 160 pounds but could hold his own in fights and in the corners with much larger opponents. But Lindsay was also a gifted offensive player, a natural goal scorer who set records for a left wing and made up one third of Detroit's famous Production Line in the 1940s and 1950s. Nine times he was an All-Star, eight of those selections to the First Team. Such a combination, in such a small, powerful package, hadn't been seen in the National Hockey League before the arrival of Terrible Ted Lindsay, and it hasn't been seen since.

The Shadow

Jan Erixon

Was a stiff in terms of offensive ability, but man could he just shadow teams top players.

A tireless worker that never stopped, until his back gave out.

I assume its the "nature" of theo's "issues" that was bothersome. It bothered me too. child abuse in every "form" is not a joking matter or is it something you can "just get over" real quik like.

One of my favorite quotes from Brian Sutter is "Hard work is a skill too." It fit that whole family.

Kelly Buchberger gets my nomination with Scott Walker beeing a close 2nd. Dan Hinote is another guy that should be named like Guy Carbonneau.

Have to think about Purinton a little bit...dunno right now...

Anyone notice that this list contains a lot of grinders?
Grinders are the hardest working players on ice. They do all the little things that can change a game.

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.
buchberger has on of the biggest hearts for sure...probably one of the least skilled captians ever...
i still remember one game with the kings when we were getting killed by Boston...Buchy dropped the gloves about 4 times that night trying to jump start the team...but we still got shutout 4-0.,..but buchy continued to do everything he could...and yes, buchy got kiilled in all his fights...but he is a guy who gives his all for the team
