In Response to Re: What can Bruins get if they trade Brad Marchand
[QUOTE]Kind of surprised to see the Marchand detractors still being so vocal, given what this kid has accomplished Marchand is still only 23 (turned 23 in May), with plenty of upside...consider this: Regular season: 77gp 21-20-41 +25 - 5th in rookie goals (tied) - 9th in rookie points - 2nd in rookie +/- (behind McQuaid) - TOI: 13:59 Playoffs: 25gp 11-8-19 +12 Pace that out across 82 games: 36-26-62 +39 - 6th in scoring (tied) - 2nd in goals - 3rd in +/- (tied) - rookie leader in G, A, PTS & +/- TOI: 16:46 Krejci money? No Value placed as 2nd or 3rd round pick: laughable The reality is that the B's are not all that strong on the wing, they need this kid back. The kid played better and his production improved as the games got tougher and more important. The immaturity and shenanigans will improve with age.

You don't know.
I don't know.
If you can accurately predict the future, I want to hear some lottery numbers or some stock picks.
Come on, this is now going the Kessel route, projecting over an 82 game season for 36 goals? Next people are to say he's a proven 40 goal scorer.
I posted his numbers on another thread. Some numbers are good and some numbers are not so good.
I think everyone needs to chill out big time, this has gone hysterical.
IF Marchand was getting shopped we would be hearing more rumors, and there has only been one rumore I've heard.Speaking TO Marchand's maturity
, he has NOT
said anything like Kessel did saying he wanted out. Marchand has NOT
dissed any coaches so that it got into the press like Kessel's weight room comment. There have NOT
been any comments by teammates showing discord.
He's a good player, not a great player, I don't think he's going to the HOF.
He's a important part of this team, but not an essential part.
He's a young player that shows lots of promise, but he only has been in the league one year.
