On the Wings, it has to be Draper, Maltby, and Zetterberg........those guys are the few on the wings that give it their all every night.
However, for hardest working backup goaltenders, it just has to be Manny Legace. Hes willing to accept being third string, second string, 1st string. Whatever. He comes in, plays, does his best, works hard, and NEVER COMPLAINS. He bails out the Wings ***** more times than I can count and never complains.
Umh...didn't Mike Danton do the exact same thing? Not sure he's a brave individual.
But I completely agree on Buchberger.
You cant challenge Dantons courage on ice. I remeber when he challenged Zdeno he just skated up to Z and dropped his glove at which point Z laughed in his face and pushed him away. Still took some major guts to drop the glove and ask a guy to go who is literally 1 foot taller and has (again literally) 69-70 lbs on you.
