Marchment Done?

Reports are circulating that 16 year veteran Bryan Marchment is close to officially signing his retirement papers. Anyone who has watched hockey will likely have a Marchment Moment...

It is unfortunate that Marchment will be most remembered for the several dangerous knee on knee hits he made throughout his career instead of the dependable, physical play he provided during his time!

His former teammates will remember him as a fierce competitor who would do whatever was needed to win (and often more). He knew how to play only one way...full speed.

Good luck Mush!

Note: Classic Marchment video highlights on my blog.

I remember him from the days when Dallas played Edmonton like every year in the playoffs. Good player.

Some quotes from Marchment:

Was a dick on the ice and now a dick off the ice. No sympathy from me.

One of the dirtiest ever to play the game. Good riddance.

He still to this day gets boo'd every time he touches the puck in Dallas.

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.

I am going to have to agree with this - I'm glad he got too slow over the past couple of years to not be able to hurt anyone else.

Good riddance.

Watch him take out two reporters at the knee during his retirement speech.

That's hysterical - now I have to clean up the coffee I just spit out on my laptop.

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.

He was never tough. He never stood up for his cheapshots well called out. Nor was he ever good defensively either.

The league is better off without him.

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….’

He always stood up for himself despite the dirty hits he's a warrior and the game needs more players like this

One thing you can never take away from Marchment...

He never left anything on the ice. A characteristic many current NHLers are missing!

(ok...he did leave many an opponent on the ice...but besides that!)

Ouch...cheap shot...fitting though!

?? isn't the cliche generally "leaves everything on the ice" and thus seperates the on-ice escapades and everyday life?

I thought Bryan Marchment was done after no one gave him a job?
