I loved to watch Marchment play. He was tough and was always looking for the big hit. He did some stupid things, mostly in his early years, but you could always count on him standing up for teammates and playing solidly in his end.
This is better news than another Sanley Cup in Dallas. He already cost us one -- at least. What was it, 4 knees in 14 months? Is that some kind of record? Sounds like Happy Gilmore's skate stabbing record.

what he says makes sense... the nhl is getting softer...the physicallity seems like its dieng..i loved the old nhl... I love watching Big John Leclair try to screen the goalie and big Derian hatcher is trying to clear him away from the net.. those were great battles that took place in front of the net.. Now Guys like Daniel Briere can go in front of the net without paying a price..The new rules have made this game more about Finesee... The new hooking rules are crazy.. the refs are never consistant with the calls..The games are more decided by the refs..
Does anybody remember that cartoon in The Hockey News a few years back that was titled ‘Bryan Marchment Going Through His Hockey Card Collection’? It was hilarious. ‘Got him. Got him. Need to get him. Got him. Need to get him. Got him….’
