You have every reason to not be sure, Marchand is the better goalscorer. I'm still hesitant to give him the edge in overall ability at this point, but he'll get there soon enough.

It amazes me that people hate Burrows more than Marchand, yet Marchand dives more now and actually hits to injure.

Sorry. I'm a Caps fan. End of mini-rant.

Let's continue.

Marchand deserves his reputation 100% ... he is what he is... A PEST/A BEAST/A CHAMPION/A WINNER

Oh yeah. Dude can play.

Sure he skates a fine line, but his effort level combined with skill level is WORLD CLASS.

Love his game.
But he was awfully quiet and inefficient against the Hawks.

He's a rat, on and off the ice.

Are you new to hockey? Is a pest's reputation of being a pest deserved? Yes.

On topic, he definitely deserves his reputation because he has done all those things.

He's earned it but actually he toned it down this year. The goal versus Cooke in game 2 was some epic trolling, loved it.

As a person who is from the same area as Marchand.

Yes, he deserves all the hate and more.

He knows he deserves it. If you go out on the ice and chirp the whole entire opposing team. And you cant back it up by dropping the gloves. You lose respect from a ton of players and fans.

He probably made this thread. Marchand just trolling anyone and everyone and still being a top six forward. Gotta love it.

He was a non-factor in the SCF and seemed to crawl back into middle earth.
He's a punk, submarine artist and I would seriously be beyond annoyed if that turd got traded to Vancouver.

I think Marchand has deserved his reputation by certain instances in his past, but it seems like he has cut a lot of the borderline dirty stuff out of his game and now is a just a talented pest.

Is is because he is a jerk or maybe because he make 4m a year and you make 25k in your job?? Just wondering if there may be a bit of jealousy clouding your hate.

In 2011 when Marchand helped the Bruins win the Cup, he got a tattoo that misspelled Champions as 'Champians'.

Yes he does. I put him in the same category as Matt Cooke.

Because he's an egotistical idiot who thinks he is above the law and that every one should know and worship him.

He quit on the Mooseheads in the dressing room during the play-offs.. He wasn't injured and he was sat out of games 3/4 despite the deadline price the Moose paid for him. I have reputable sources to tell me what happened in the dressing room.

He urinated all over the casino.

Frequently gets mad at people around the city, bouncers, restaurant owners when they don't "know" who he is.

No one in the Hammonds Plains likes him and I'm around that area enough for hockey to know that Halifax, Bedford and almost all of Nova Scotia dislikes him, he got booed here during the pre-season game and most people cheered when the crowd chirped him.

He's heavily disliked in his own province and it has everything to do with what an actual ********* he is. Those aren't antics on the ice, that is the pure true reflection of the human being he is.

He is a jerk. He is very arrogant especially when he parties. Expects people to fuss about him and if a girl doesn't recognize him he plays the I'm a Stanley cup champion card. Even if he was a Hab I'd still think he was a *******.

hes a cheap player but i love his play. I would take him on the leafs anyday. Him and Burrows are those types of guys.

Then again, i don't actively hate him. I would if he was useless and played like he does, but he's not.

And Burrows does not hide from clean body checks by low bridging a guy. That was one of the most cowardly plays I have ever seen.
