honestly they are both similar players... both very skilled as well

i think the main difference is that Marchand was pretty well behaved during the regular season... he was told by management to just focus on playing hockey and had a guy like Recchi on his line keep him in check and for the most part he did that. It wasn't until the playoffs that the agitator in him really came out and that is just more expected/accepted in the playoffs

Subban was playing his game most of the season and the fact he was going after Crosby, the NHL's golden boy, is what really raised the attention imo... plus players were all speaking out against him

but yes there is a bit of a hypocricy there no question
