Obvious cheapshot. Marchand going after an unsuspecting, clean player. Marchand says how he wasn't sure what Salo was going to do. Bunch of garbage. He's just trying to add some vagueness make it seem like he was confused, but he knew exactly what Sami was going to do. Sami was going to give him a soft shoulder check/bump like he always does. He says how sami is like 6' 4" /6' 5"ish bahaha. Trying to make it seem like he's some big goon like Lucic. Julien comes across as an idiot as well. Marchand is just lying through his teeth to hopefully get a tiny bit smaller suspension and plant some doubt in shanahan's mind, but it is obvious that he was trying to hurt salo with that cheapshot. He did the exact same thing to sedin in the playoffs, but i guess big bad sedin was going to rough him up there as well. i remember the boston fans defending marchand there too saying that sedin was coming to hit him. bahaha. The guy has absolutely no remorse for anyone. It's too bad that max he can get is 5 games.
Kid's a pansy that went out to hurt our player and got away with it. Walked away like he was some superhero. pathetic. if any other team was watching, the character of that team is obvious when you see horton patting marchand on the helmet after the hit. Goon team and goon coach. It's time for the nhl/refs to clean up its act in the regular season and especially the playoffs, and not let goon teams get away with murder before someone dies out there. Let's be honest, the only reason we had more power plays last game is because it was the regular season and the refs figured they'd better call something after providing an unfair playing field in the finals. If that game was in the finals, 95% of those penalties against the bruins wouldn't have been called.
AV is definitely right when he said someone someone's going to hurt him one day (not his exact words). He's a dirty player playing for a dirty team. Teams are getting sick of the bruins and they are getting desperate to beat them. Sooner or later, someone is going to attempt to injure their stars (lucic, chara) out of desperation. I'm sure Marchand will get it sooner rather than later though.
