    Re: Such a disgrace

    In Response to Re: Such a disgrace:
    Marchand is a insecure player. What other reason is there for always yapping whenever play stops and the 'mouth dance' begins. If I was a Canuck I would pat him on the head and skate away. This little boy is not worthy of my attention. Indifference is the purest form of 'nothing' you can do to a person. Treat him as a non entity and he will really lose it and finally get the pentalties he so deserves.

    Marchand insecure? He yaps, but he backs it up by dropping the gloves, not biting them. Hey, while your here, whats the latest word on the Sedins? I didn't realize they were injured until I checked the box scores the last few games.Granted i only checked the scoresheet part but they were no where to be found.Any update??

    In Response to Such a disgrace:
    This style of hockey that is played by Burrows, Lapierre and to a lesser extent by the Sedins is a total disgrace to the game.  How can anyone respect their style when they are nothing more than total frauds? This is exactly why I have been down on Marchand all season.  Now that you see it from the other side, can you understand my point of view a little more?

    Your dislike for Marchand is well documented, not sure a new thread to say it again is necessary.

    IMO, Marchand is nothing like Burrows or Lapierre for a couple of reasons. 

    Marchand may try to draw the occasional penalty like many other players, but he does not fake being injured.  In game 5, Burrows faked being injured a couple of times, while Lapierre survived that "mortal wound" from Chara's love-tap to score the game winner. That is Hab hockey at its finest, really surprised you don't see that. 

    The other reason is that Marchand answers the bell.  Not fighting often, but not backing up or hiding behind his teammates. He'll take the hit to make the play, and puts the target square on his own back.  I respect that about his game.

    I think Marchand's development has been one of the most enjoyable aspects of watching this season.  My sig-line was created when he was skating on the 4th-line, and I wanted to see him move up to get more minutes.  I am very pleased by his play in these playoffs and look forward to him being a big part of this team for years to come.

    I created this one for a few reasons.

    1.  It's free, so why not?

    2.  I'm free, so why not?

    3.  With all of the foolishness going on from the other side right now, I found it relevant.

    Marchand might take a hit to make a play more often than not, but there was a play last night (facing Luongo) in the right corner where he absolutely turned into Mary Poppins  and took the easy route to avoid getting hit...and subsequently gave no battle for the puck.

    Yeah, he dropped his gloves one or twice.  Steve Ott, Steve Downie and Sean Avery drop their gloves also.  It doesn't make them less cheap or more respectable.

    The kid has mad skills.  That shorthanded goal was one to be remembered for a lifetime.  His dirty play, diving, chippy half-Hanson play is no better than Burrows or Lapierre.

    Right, but how's my offensive awareness?  Wrist shot power?  Wrist shot accuracy?

    I assume this is the real OC, someone who's knowledge I respect.  Stop taking your NHL '11 into real world conversations, OC.

    Hard to argue with your comparison of Marchand to Burrows/Lapierre when you change the argument to Ott, Downie, Avery, a Hanson brother and Mary Poppins. IMO, if you keep the goal-posts static, it makes for a better debate.

    That said, you hate the kid, we all get it.  You are on the record, no need to keep beating the drum. I know you won't stop beating the kid up, that's fine, because I will continue to defend him while also fully enjoying watching him play.

    I'm sorry am I missing something here when has Marchand dove so badly that he's thought of as Lapierre and Burrows ?

    I can't compare the players becuase Marchand doesn't do it with ridiculous consistency night in night out. Yes I'm looking at it through black n gold goggles but as much as those two "Mike Ribeiro school of diving" honor student graduates ?

    'real world conversations'? THAT is hilarious. Anonymous posters arguing barely empirically about their favourite or least favourite players? Kids on the curb with hockey cards are having conversations that are more 'real world' than any of this.

    No, this lame thread reads more like a Bakugan match - "I stunned you with my Lapierre - well, I blocked you with Marchand power X10!!" - so funny -

    ...And speaks more to the ego of its originator than anything or anyone else - Marchand, Lapierre, Burrows et al included.

    In Response to Re: Such a disgrace:
    Absolutely agree, and I will list two smaller factors about Marchand that make better than those guys (in addition to playing for the Bruins...) 1.  He really doesn't dive.  He yaps, he's cheap, he's annoying, but I haven't seen him dive. 2. At the end of the game in Boston when he dumped Sedin and everyone came after him, he threw down the gloves and turned to face whomever was coming for him.  You'll never see that from Burrows, Lapierre, or the Sedins. But seriously Marchand can annoy me too, despite how great he is playing.  I just can't imagine having to support those guys on the Canucks.  Total disgrace to hockey.

    How is Marchand any different than Lapierre and Burrows?  I'd say he has more offense than Lapierre and bites less than Burrows.  All three run their mouths.  All three are stickwork kings behind the play.  All three dive.

    If I saw Burrows or Lapierre on the street, words such a punk, baby, cheater, diver, and slimeball would be used. 

    I've seen Marchand on the street.  I didn't care.

    These are guys who play a game really well.  They aren't heros.  The real heros are in the Middle East and in the ground.

    You didn't see Marchand stick one of the Sedins in the bag (or really, in the vag) at a faceoff right in front of the Bruins bench?

    It was brutal.
