Rookie with biggest work ethic.

I would have to give it to Sim. He doesn't stop at any cost. I would give second to Ben Eager. Heavy hitter and great on the forecheck.

Umberger or Richards. Hitting and playing physical doesnt mean work ethic.

Unless one were to spend time with these guys at practice, in the weight room, in the training room and at home, I'm not sure how any of us could say who's got the best work ethic. Much of the work that goes into becoming a successful player happens away from the arena.

No **** Sherlock.

There is such a thing as having a great work ethic on the ice. I mean, Pavel Bure worked his @ss off in the weight room and in practice (he was probably the best conditioned athlete in the NHL in his prime), but you would never say he is a hockey player with a great work ethic. Basically who is mr Hustle out there? Who fights for position along the boards, is the most tenacious getting back to their own zone, drives to the net with guys all over them, never gets caught with lazy hooking penalties because they arent moving their feet, fights to stay on their feet when being hooked, blocks shots on the penalty kill, never gives up and makes those diving plays for loose pucks, etc. Think Rod Brindamour or Chris Draper.

They all do, none of them do it halfhearted out there. They know they have to produce in order for this team to win. They are all doing as much as they can with all the injuries. I love our young guys.

I was one of the guys that voted for him. I started liking him when i noticed that he pisses the sh-t outa goaltenders because he's always taking shots at the puck under the goalie and crashing the net. He seems to work his @ss off every time he's on the ice. I chose him not based on player quality, but the effort that's put into every shift.

Yea I think Sim has done a great job and is only on the team because he works so hard. Therefore you have to give it to him. Now here is the real question: Who works the least? I say Therien

Sim works hard but he's not a rookie! That's what a few posters in this thread are missing. Sim's like 50 years old, not a rookie.

Haven't watched the Flyers much this year, not a Flyers fan, but I would go on record without a doubt saying that Richards has the best work ethic out of all the rookies.

On Kitchener (and Team Canada) he was always a leader by example and worked his *** off night in, night out. I know it's hard for me to judge since I've seen only a handful of games, but I'm that confident in Richards' history and I see no reason to question it now.

139 games over seven seasons in the NHL, I'd call that a rookie. And he's only 28 years old. Bobby Hull, on the other hand, is your prototypical AHL sophomore.
