[QUOTE]In Response to Re: What can Bruins get if they trade Brad Marchand : How would you know if someone has inquired about a trade? Other GM's are reluctant to put offer sheets out on anyone. Drew , Zack, and Luke haven't received offer sheets either, do you think they aren't coveted either? Fair Market Value is not whatever the Bruins are willing to pay him. You sure do like to make assumptions as to what is going on with negotiations. In the middle of the summer, the bruins were celebrating a Stanley Cup. For your information, Brad Marchand is not a Hold Out, as camp has not opened and the kid is even practicing without a contract. It's obvious to me that because Marchand is cocky and a punk in some of your eyes, you feel he doesn't deserve to be paid. In my eyes, these qualities are exactly why he should get paid. The kid is a WINNER! Look at the track record 2 world junior golds, a QMJHL championship, a Stanley Cup, 2nd all-time in goals scored by a rookie in the playoffs! It's not cocky if you can back it up!
I am not playing the devil's advocate, we don't know what PC is offering and we don't know what Brad's agent is asking for. If PC let's him go, there are going to be some po'd people and I am one of them. Didn't care that Phil was gassed as that kid was a cancer and doesn't have the heart, drive, or determination that Marchand has in his big toe.

21 career NHL regular season goals.
61 career NHL points.
What he did as a kid is irrelevant when it comes to playing in the NHL.
Just ask this guy, the captain of the '09 Gold medal team:
Drafted 4th overall in 2007.
NHL stats: 0-0-0 NHL games played: 0
I don't think Thomas Hickey's agent and fans (if there are any) talk about his accomplishments at the World Juniors.
