THe hawks have plenty, which I naturally love

For the sabres its Adam Mair. This guy doesnt get alot of ice time, but when he does he gives 150%. I cant remember a post game interview where he didnt have a black eye or cuts on his face. Roy comes in a close 2nd for me.

Darcy Tucker, no one in the NHL does more with less in terms of skating ability and size.

Peter Forberg.

I realize that the original question posed here - "Who's the best hard worker" - lends itself to naming an "unsung" hero, a 7th man, so to speak. But Forsberg fits the description offered: "an energetic player, who hit everytime he can, gritty, a player who will play for the success of the team, a heart player".

Just so happens that he also possesses world-class skills.

The combination (skill and desire) is what makes him special.

Gary Roberts is another name that comes immediately to mind. A lot of solid choices in this thread.

Bouillion would have been a good candidate for the Habs last season as well.

Kelly Buchberger. He puts his body on the line, literally (people who have seen him fight know what I'm talking about).

Kris Draper and Kirk Maltby who did their jobs for loaded Wings teams and only in the past two seasons have really taken the bull by the horns and shown what they can do given the opportunity. Both guys are hard workers and do all the little things which don't show up on the stat sheet but are appreciated by the coaching staff and fans of the game .....

For Blues, as a fellow Bluesfan already stated: Dallas Drake, and Mike Danton would tear from one end of the ice to the other. (Of course,when he wasn't planning mob hits, :lol )

Saku Koivu! He gives it all every night, he's going into the corner, throwing some hits, forchecks, backchecks. He is doing all that with a body that went throught multiple injuries and cancer. Saku is the hardest worker of them all...

MATTHEW BARNABY. <-- When he was on the Rangers, he was a fan favorite for his hard work, and his happy go-lucky personality with the kids, charity, etc. He may be a bit shorter (6'1) then the people he fights (Zdeno Chara) but, he doesn't give up no matter what. Barnaby can hit, fight, score a few goals, and make some nice passes.

Stephane Yelle is probably the best out in Calgary, but he's got plenty of competition.

Indeed. Anybody who will pick a fight with Zdeno Chara to protect his teammates is a brave individual in my book.
