what are the odds of Gallagher going after Marchand? makes sense...I know if I was him why the heck not; Gallagher can fight a bit...we as Bruins fans can only hope Gallagher can become a world class ahole and bring some hate to this rivalry.
there are few things in sports than Boston and Montreal both good and geniune dislike
Hate to ruin the party, but not a single Habs fan has heard Brendan referred to by that nickname. Sounds like a couple of TSN journalists from Toronto thought they were being clever and called him that, which is probably what the players were responding to in the interview. But honestly, I haven't read a single Montreal article that mentions that or heard one Montreal broadcaster call him that.
As some of you have noted, Little Ball Of Hate is an old nickname. I thought it was tired and cliched when it was used on Marchand. Really hope its shelf life stops there.
