    I would say EJ for the Avs followed by Landeskog.

    Calvert deserves a mention for this though :laugh: Took one for the team on an empty netter in the playoffs:

    yeah, Anderson has been there for a while. I don't know about now, but when he's hot, he's GREAT!
    Chabot, also. I just couldn't think of anyone. And Pageau, the Habs killer! lol

    at least you didnt deny it in this hypothetical. so there is that,

    just so that we are on the same page, take extra long shifts that leads to you being gassed is not a good thing, right ?

    Ideally no but if you're the teams best forward I think it's better off to have the more talented player even if tired on the ice during crucial moment of the game.

    There’s no bitterness here at all. I even said they have the right to negotiate their contracts however they want and that they’re not bad people for it. I merely expressed my opinion that their unwillingness to take any sort of slight pay-cut (which Tavares did do - he was offered more money by other teams but took less to sign with the Leafs) to help the club build a more competitive roster disqualified them from being the heart and soul of the franchise in my mind.

    When you are meh defensively with wind, yeah not so much.

    Heart and soul guys play hard every shift for the entirety of the shift. Gallagher isn't only the heart and soul of the habs, he might be standard to which others are compared.

    Radulov, not so much. And based on talent, he wasn't better than patches the year he was here. So there is that.

    He might have been gased but he was still giving his 100% each and every shift. I seriously don't know where this is going. He always played hard when he was in Montreal and never took a day off.

    Sadly the Rangers keep trading away their heart and soul players..

    Dubinsky, Callahan, Zuccarello, and soon will be Kreider. I’m all for skill and talent but you need guys who give a crap and give their all and set an example on and off the ice.

    I still hope the Rangers will try and find a way to keep Kreider, but it doesn’t look good.

    He was terrific. I hadn't enjoyed watching a single Hab on the ice as much since Kovalev.

    [MOD]

    He was twice the player Paccioretty was that year. Rads' drive was infectious. I guess some people keep pushing that Russians is lazy narrative.

    How is that possible when oshie has been with caps for only 4 season when ovie has been his entire career. Its basically like you say Ovechkin doesnt care about caps If someone who jumps to caps from other team has More heart and soul than ovi

    when you lose the puck in the corner and give up on the backcheck, you are not giving 100%.

    you know who gives 100% every shift ? here's a hint, he wears #11. And he doesn't just give 100% on the easy parts of the ice.

    saying that radulov has gallagher's work ethic is laughable, but it turns out that's true for most players not names gallagher,

    guys who routinely take long shifts so that they get gassed, aint doing you any favors.

    Are you really nitpicking on one play in a 82 games season to make an opinion of a players work ethic? Anybody could pull this for any player in the NHL.

    There's nothing to debate about if you genuinely think that Radulov is not a hard worker.

    The answer for the Ducks for the past several years would have been Cogliano.

    Now I guess it's Gibson? So many times this year the team played like complete garbage and Gibby stood on his head to keep them in it.
