Phone means 5 or less. So I question 'easily' as its the max. I say 3 personally.

Didn't Marchand give Umberger elbow to the head once? I think he got suspended for it and I haven't seen him do it since.

Know what, Habs have a young player just like Marchand in Gallagher, they're hardly the Matt Cooke types. Hope you don't mind when we show pleasure when he dies by the sword as well.
Gallagher isn't really like Marchand. Similar in energy but Marchand is more talented, has better vision but is also more of a pest. Gallagher is more of a talented grinder who crashes.

FWIW, I'd take either on my team.

Jesus Christ what a cheap shot. I hope Brad will be all right. SOMEONE wearing the Spoked B should have torn Volenchenkov's head off for that.

Horton seems to go through stretches where he looks like he doesn't care/is floating. He has always looked like that so I don't know why some are acting like it's new. He has always been like that.

I find it hard to accuse a player of not trying because that's pretty subjective but there is floating in his game.

Who is happy? At most I've seen some say 'karma' not unlike what was said about Crosby and others here.

I doubt any sane person thinks its a good hit. Terrible hit. Not even subtle, just really bad.

Don't understand how passive the B's were after the hit to Marchand??? I was expecting some anger out of them.

Last year he was moved off that line, he Peverley and Kelly caught fire. DK ended up being moved to wing b/c he was so awesome w/o Lucic.

Every game, no matter win or lose, the discussion is Lucic. Even when he does play well, never enough. He had a bad night. His linemates did dinky ****in doo, but yeah, of course, here we are.

No one wants to talk a/b our D getting swarmed? Rubbed out? Can't connect a pass out of the zone? Routinely coughing up pucks at our blueline? Boychuk? Ference? Chara and Siedenberg look exhausted.

If Lucic could just deal w/ a two man forecheck.
If Lucic isn't scoring he has to rely on the other aspects of his game in order to contribute. His best aspect? Hitting....he's not doing it. He looks like a rudderless garbage scow floundering in the tide otherwise....

Don't think you have been in the main topic recently apparently Marchand is the dirtiest player to ever skate

Statistically he's hitting, or so nhl.com says. He's just not HITTING. That's pretty obvious to the eyeball test for sure.

Speaking only in terms of agitation, he's right there. Pushing Phaneuf onto Reimer, running Killorn into the stanchion (really surprised this got absolutely no play in Montreal... well, not really). He's a pest through and through and plays like it. He's been more effective in that regard this season then even Marchand.

Of course most Habs fans won't want to see them in the same light, but that's to be expected. Similar to how most Habs fans completely excuse Pacioretty for all his ******-baggery.

Another missed opp to rally the troops. Someone should've opened a can of whoopass on the devils last night. Should've been a "Dallas" game.

You know justice wise I want a suspension because that was a pretty clear elbow to the head, but 1 game or 10 games doesn't make Marchand better or put him back in the line up.

Ticks me off that it happened but not much anyone can do to really make it better.

If the Isles start the kind of play we need someone or more to step up and kick Butt.

I was hoping this year against buffalo but after Scott beat Thornton up we skated away pretty much and it's been like that in every Sabres game

He's our alleged first line stud. He HAS to make an impact, literally, figuratively and metaphorically....he's not doing it.

Horton is even worse....I think he has one hit in the last 5 games. He's just floating around until Krejci finds him. If he didn't have a killer shot he'd be in the press box because he isnt doing anything else.

With Bergeron and now possibly Marchand out, someone has to step up....you want it to be the go-to- guys but instead it's the bottom six guys who're doubling their efforts and it's paying off for them.

Jeez, can you imagine what a mess these guys would be if we didn't have Jagr to ooh and ahh over?
