    What players in the NHL exhibit the highest levels of compete? Typically great forecheckers, win puck battles, draw penalties through their hard work, dogged determined puck pursuit, grit grapple grind types that make the most of their ice time in every zone.

    I like Cirelli from TBay, Garland from AZ, Tanev in WPG, Rodrigues in BUF and maybe Larkin, Arvidsson, Hertl, Zuccarello, and ROR as some top end guys who are always putting in work.

    Who else likes to ****in give'r?

    For the last few games, Brendan Lemieux. For most of the season, Brandon Tanev.

    Hyman should be paid more so he could afford buying his bread from the store.

    Since Gallagher's already been mentioned I'll throw in Paul Byron.

    Hyman is a dog and the puck is his bone.

    I say it all the time but I’d take a team
    Full of Casey Cizikas. Guy is full throttle balls to the wall every shift. He’s a monster penalty killer as well. Just doesn’t ever stop moving his feet or going after it.

    Most sub-6 foot bottom six players basically have to be going at 120% every shift .

    For San Jose it’s Evander Kane. Hertl has transitioned to being the F3 on his line and is excelling with Kane as the F1. Timo Meier also applies but Kane does this a bit more consistently than him.
