Marchand's value is as high as it could possibly be right now, imo. I do think that he is a better than Foligno is right now (significantly better offensively), but I also don't think we can say we know exactly what kind of player Marchand is after one good year/playoff run. I know I wouldn't want to pay Boston's price.

I do think people are underrating him by oversimplfying it and calling him a 3rd liner... there aren't a ton of players who put up 20 goals as a rookie (and 20 points in the playoffs) who top out as a 3rd liner.
