The Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy is awarded annually to the National Hockey League player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication to ice hockey.
 
Considering that he pretty much came up during the tank and he hasn't let it ruin his development as a player, and is becoming a key member of the team, is there *anyone* on this team that better exemplifies perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication?

I wish sportsmanship was left to the Lady Byng. I don't think Marcus is a good fit for this, but I believe the hockey writers from each NHL city have to nominate someone. It led to the wonky choice of ROR last year. Dedication, yes, but what did he overcome other than a self-inflicted injury?

Marcus was on the team a few seasons before the tank. I think Moulson and Gionta are way better fits for this award.

If Lehner ends up having a good season, he might be a good choice. He has overcome the ankle injury and certainly dedicated himself last summer to getting in great shape, losing weight etc.

 

Is it March already?

After his play on the top line, I have to reiterate:  I think Marcus deserves it.

Yeah, Marcus has been re-energized since being put on the first line. He never quits and always plays at full speed. He deserves it.

Probably not more than that, unless he manages to glue himself to Jack's hip. I still see him as bottom six talent that can handle some occasional top six duty.

I love the way he skates lately, not only does it make him a pest on the forecheck, it also helps his offensive game immensely as he gets a lot more opportunities now.

Foligno on a breakaway? When was the last time that happened?

Depends what the Golden Knights are willing to pay him.

15 goals is a lot for a DB coached team. I lost my conversion charts but I think that's roughly the equivalent of 25 goals for a player with a competent NHL coach.
