I still don't like him as a player.

And yeah, Pat Verbeek was the original Little Ball of Hate. Marchand needs his own nickname. I vote for Little ***** Stirrer.

most interesting part of the article:

Quote:
His father, Kevin, forcefully hit the reset button last summer. Obviously Marchand was happy to give the shirt off his back to win the Stanley Cup, which he did in some widely disseminated photos taken at a team party three nights after Game 7, at Foxwoods Casino in Ledyard, Conn. Marchand was excused from scheduled interviews for the official Stanley Cup DVD because at 4 p.m. the next day he had what the NHL might describe as an inner-body injury. Or as Marchand puts it, he was "intoxicated."

"[After the Cup, linemate Tyler Seguin] and I went on a bit of a tear, partying pretty much every night for a while," Marchand says. "I went home and kinda continued it. I thought [winning a championship] was something that might never happen, so I was trying to take it all in, enjoy it.... My dad sat me down and sorta gave me a lashing. He told me if we win two of the next three years, he'd leave me alone." Marchand's day with the Cup in late August was a demure affair. Says one attendee who has ties to the Bruins, "It was like he was grounded at his own party."

Marchand was definitely the second most valuable player in the finals against Vancouver (behind Thomas of course).

It's a good nickname but Pat Verbeek will always be the "little ball of hate" to me. I'd stick with Nose Face Killah.

Or, to be perfectly correct, he could be "BLUEnose Face Killah" in a nod to his Nova Scotia roots.
