I do think it was too low, because of what you go on to say. When you stick your hip out as an obstacle to someone trying to get around you, their feet are moving and they typically just get upended and fall down, you look cool etc.

The reason I say Marchand's was too low is because when you initiate contact with your hip (or anything) that low on a stationary puck handler, his feet are planted. So he's not going to go end-over-end. He's going to fold in two at the knees. Marchand has gotta hit him higher if he's going to hit him when he's stationary.
