Let me start by paying homage to the career of Kelly Buchberger, he of very little skill and a really, really ugly mug.

Buchberger has his name on 2 cups and stuck around as long as he did via sure determination. For a player to have captained two NHL teams with his level of skill is remarkable. Many, many players of far greater skill have come and gone while BUcky persevered. His goals were few but timely, and his willingness to stick up for his teammates should be the standard by which "heart" is measured. Kelly took some awful beatings for his mates - it was a role he felt he could fill and he took it to heart and filled it well.

Kelly Buchberger, number 16 in your program, number one in our hearts...
Bucky definetly fills the bill of the third/fourth liner with heart, more so because Im an Oiler fan, but one guy who seemed like a sort of "shooting star" (if stay at home defenseman can be considered stars" is Vladimir Konstatinov, incredible defenseman, played hard but obviously had his career cut down drasticlly.

Somewhere in this ******* county, where the hills are round and green...

Late nights make me really tired, all this jamming gives me a headache,
Like listening to earthquakes all wired up for rock and roll.
Mama only listens to the radio.
Papa only watches hockey games.
This suburb rocks with the Eddie Van Wailers.
God save the Queen--she made you a moron!

Part II

Well I heard Wendel talking to Dave Hodge last night--
And he said that he was confident and keen.
And he said that Jacques Plante didn't die
So all of us could glide,
He said that hard work is the ethic of the free.

Wendel was a man with a stick in his hands
Who learned how to play in Kelvington, S-A-S-K.
You'll wish that you had died,
When Wendel has your hide,
'Cause he does it the Canadian way.

So now we sit around on the couch and watch TV
And we see Wendel leading the team.
Well, if God made Clark on the seventh day,
He knew what He was doing if He did.
(If He did!)

Like this: Bam, Bam--digga digga damm!
Clear the trap, 'cause here comes Wendel.
Number seventeen, I mean it!

Keith Magnuson. Talk about a guy who got the most out of his abilities and never took a shift off. One of the most enthusiast players to ever play the game. He had the heart of a lion. Though he lost more than his fair share of fights, he always stood up for teammates and he never backed down from a fight.

Jocelyn Lemieux - One of the most rugged open ice hitters and punishing forecheckers the game has ever seen. He was a human cannonball. He made the dump and chase exciting, he had no regard for his own body and would level the defensemen in the corners in the old Chicago stadium it seemed like almost every shift.

Are you old enough to remember the old Wednesday night Hab/Leaf games when it seemed the whole point of the game was to see if Ferguson would finally catch up with Shack for whatever he'd done the week before.

Brian Sutter put the shizzle in the game of hockey. Pretty hard not to like a guy that played with that much heart/guts

A future Name Your Fave legend is Steve Ott. I don't think i have ever seen a hockey player work as hard as he does. He does everything he can to make a win possible for the team. He will be the future captain of the dallas stars. I am glad he played for the Bulldogs last year.

I was young then so I might not remember things quite right, but one guy who comes to mind is Greg Terrion. He was no superstar but seemed to give lots of effort all the time.

Martin Gelinas - I love watching this guy play - never takes a shift off and goes full throttle every time - glad his name is on the Cup. Wish he was wearing the Black and Gold.

Ken Wregget & Kelly Buchberger.

Neither had much in the term of skill, but more than made up for it in heart & determination. Everything a fan could want out of a player.

I liked Corbet when he´s been in the NHL and he´s been a character in the DEL now.
I do like Mike Grier, too.
Stone hands andstrange shoulders, but usefull player.

Colin Patterson, Joel Otto and definitely Stephane Yelle (already mentioned) immediately come to mind for the Flames.

Oh yeah, and Andrew Ference!!!

Al MacInnis if he even qualifies. Always loved his modesty and farmboy/fisherman image.

Randy McKay was a classic. Jay Pandolfo will also go in that category somewhere down the line.

Throw in another vote for McPhee.

As for non-Habs, I'm going with Joey Kocur, and for defense, Mark Tinordi (although it's debateable that the latter was, in fact, a superstar. He was every bit as good as the $4.6-mil man Adam Foote is today, anyway).

Brian Sutter would be mine. he could do it all and was fearless he would do whatever it took to win.

It helps if I read the criteria for the thread sorry guys. Using only third of 4th liners I would have to go with Bob Probert, he was the toughest SOB around when he played and could also score people forget that he had 29 goals one year and played in the All Star Game.
