Surprising that no one mentioned PJ Axelsson.

And he rarely takes penalties too, which I think is key.

I'm going to be a homer and go with Draper.

Morrow would be a close #2.

They overpayed that bum (had one good offensive year) and he will show it next year and the year after that. Detroit isn't fiscally responsible and are ruining the NHL.

I'm going to be a homer and go with Jason Blake, the guy is like the energizer bunny and he scores and checks, plays penalty kill. Anything you need, he'll do.

I'm gonna have to say Domi and Tucker. Especially in the playoffs, these guys just go out there and GIVE.

Non-homer picks I'm gonna have to go with guys like Kobasew and Oliwa - it was the kinda work they did that took the Flames within a game of the cup. No disrespect to Iginla, but it was the fourth line gritting down and playing hard that took that team as far as they got.

oliwa hardly played in the playoffs, and I believe Kobasew was on the third line...

and besides...how about Roy and Dingman? They too were on the fourth line...but on the winning side.

No player in the league has done more with less than Chris Clark of the Calgary Flames. He's my pick.

Buchberger - for all the things mentioned before in this thread

Mike Grier - Played for most of a season with the Oilers with shoulders that would dislocate every game...pop them back in after his shift and get back out there

Ethan Moreau - Guy was most definatly the hardest working player on the Oilers this season, Doesn't have the skill some guys do, but just hustled every night

Ryan Smyth - This guy takes many knocks every game, putting himself in front of goalies, crashing downlow etc.

Dallas Drake -

Dallas would block a shot with his nuts if the game was on the line and he bangs with the best of them. He's certainly not a scrapper though....but he'll throw down if he has to. His energy and speed create opportunities which result in roughly 20 goals a year and he has the best smile out of the entire list of names mentioned.......even Ricci.

Third, fourth were pretty similar from my point of view on it, unless someone has stats to prove me wrong I do believe that Sutter played the third and fourth lines with some pretty equal time. But I think Oliwa gave quite a bit and Kobasew really, really, really gave.

As for Andre Roy, no, I don't think he was a hard worker. Apparently Tortorella agrees with me as he sat him out so often.
