For the Bruins it'd be Samsonov...

Roberts would be my choice for hardest worker though.

He also took on Donald Brashear in a total mismatch this past season. Sure he got pummelled by Brash, but he was willing to go when Brashear was starting to push his teammates around ....

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.

I'd have to say for the Flames it's Marcus Nilson.

I'd have to say that Ethan Moreau gets my vote. The guy just never quits.
Others worthy:
Matt Cooke
Scott Walker
Brendan Morrow
Antoine Vermette
and one that no one mentioned....
Andrew Ference

only other person i can think of is Steve Yzerman. But i dont think i would catagorize him as a hard worker as much as i would perhaps having the most heart in the NHL.

I hate the Wings, but I think Stevie Y is what a hockey player should be. All around great.

Kelly Buchberger! He's so underrated, he works his ass of every game, if he had the skill of Daigle watch out! Only 1 person mentioned, him .

Umh...didn't Mike Danton do the exact same thing? Not sure he's a brave individual.

But I completely agree on Buchberger.

Kevyn Adams on the 'canes always seems to play with a little more fire than anyone else on the team.

on Carolina: Kevyn Adams

in the league: Buchberger or Konowalchuk (sp?) no other player does as much with as little as these two players have.

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.
