Marchand right now is a significantly better player than Seguin IMO. He puts up similar offensive numbers while being more physical, better defensively, willing to fight (albeit poorly), and one of the top 3 trolls in the game. If I was Chia, it would take a better package than the Seguin deal for me to trade him. I honestly can't think of anyone in the league who has Marchand's combination of skills. How many potential 30 goal guys can also get under a team's skin the way Marchand does while also being one of the guys you can go to in important defensive situations? Oh and BTW, he's only making 4.5 million for the next 4 years.

I swear, most people on this board don't give him the credit he deserves. I'm especially bothered by the general tone that Seguin is somehow a superior player, which to me is just silly, especially considering their cap hits.
