Playing style and criticism

There are 30 general managers in the NHL outside of Boston that, if given the opportunity, would be willing to pay the Kings ransom to acquire Brad Marchand. There is nothing that he does not do well, and over the past three or four seasons, has rapidly developed into one of the most impactful players in the NHL. The list of players in the league that are better than him at this moment is short one, and it seems to get shorter every year. Since the start of the 2015 - 16 season, his 97 goals are tied for third most in the league, while his 0. 50 goals per Game average is tied for second in the league. His 196 total points are seventh most, while he is one of just six players in the league that have averaged more than point - per - game over that stretch. His 57. 5 percent Corsi rating is second best in the league. He is a crucial part of what has become the best, most dominant line in hockey alongside Patrice Bergeron and David Pastrnak for what is now one of the best teams in the league and the salary cap hit $6. 125 million per season is probably still one of the best bargains in the league given what he produce. That is what makes his other antics, ones that keep getting him called into the principal office for supplemental discipline so often you would think they were serving peanut butter cups and Yoo - Hoo in there, so damn frustrating. On Wednesday, Marchand was suspended five Games for elbowing New Jersey Devils forward Marcus Johansson in the head. Johansson suffered a concussion on play and is on the sideline indefinitely. Instead of being consistently regarded as one of the league's best players, which he is! Marchands's reputation is still that of pest, or agitator, or, if you prefer, just simply dirty player. What is worse than the fact that the latter part of the criticism is absolutely true, is that he does seem to be willing to change. Or Learn. If he is willing to change or learn, he hasnt actually done it. Marchand is no stranger to folks at the NHL Department of Player Safety and it is not uncommon for him to be called in at least once or twice per season. That is not an exaggeration, either. Since DoPS was formed before the 2011 - 12 season, Marchand has been fin or suspended by the Department eight different times. That is more than any other player in the NHL during that stretch, while the only players in the league to be punished more than four times are Zac Rinaldo and Raffi Torres. That is not the group of players you want to be included with in any context. It has cost him 17 Games in suspension and close to $714 000 in forfeit salary.
