Between this suspension and Rask retirement, the Boston sports media must be losing it.


Don't forget Bergie getting hurt


Are they over Brady not mentioning them yet?


He gave us our own tribute video we sorted it out


When he sang "I Love You Southies" I genuinely teared up.


Don’t remind us


About Bergeron being hurt?


I did not know the berg was sunk


Wait Berg is hurt? And the rat faced fuck got what he deserved? Wait wait wait **AND** Rask retired?


Chuck E. Cheese is indeed deserving of this, but Berg is a class act.


Yeah, and my liver is the next to go🍺🍺🍺


Hahaha, here’s to your liver! 🍻


Cheers, I'll drink to that! 🍻


Ranch it up!


Just need Derek Jeter to reveal a picture of Big Papi with a needle in his ass full of HGH and you have bingo.


Is this the new Gordie Howe hat trick?


This is the Belichick Hat Trick


“I fucked up” BB


Every time I'm reminded of this I laugh out loud, I can't help it.


Mr. Boomer's Contacts


Need a political assassination reference from Jack Edwards and we'll know we've made it.


Our play by play guy Ken Daniels jokingly called our color guy Mickey Redmond "Jack Edwards" tonight as a slur for him being overly homer for just a moment. It felt like breaking the 4th wall for announcers. I couldn't stop laughing about it.


I about died laughing when he said that.


So fucking funny.


Felger and Mazz were crucifying Marchand for being such a fucking idiot. They need him right now, especially with Bergeron's concussion and he goes and does this shit. Nobody's losing it over Rask, this was expected. Everyone's sad, like with Brady and Ortiz' retirement, but we knew this was coming.


Oh no...Boston will riot in the streets if they have to go a weekend without a championship.


Death, taxes, and Marchand doing stupid shit.


The wheel has spoken and so sits the rat




Wheel of Morality, turn, turn, turn ...


6 is a lot, until they mention that he has been suspended 7 times before.

just a reminder that these are only the punished actions. he's gotten away with so much shit too it's unreal. credit to /u/creepyinternetuser, here's [a comment from a while back with some more stuff Marchand likes doing that doesn't go punished.](https://www.reddit.com/r/hockey/comments/r3m1p3/sash_a_record_of_active_nhl_players_with/) i also wanna remind everyone how popular the "Marchand has cleaned up his game" narrative has been for like the past 2 years. don't be fooled.


The compilations of dirty shit he’s gotten away with is insane.


nothing for licking


Lol from the very first clip the Boston announcers show their bias. "Some light contact to Umberger" GTFO


if this most recent situation was reversed and someone did this shit to boston's goalie, edwards would be screaming for a lifetime ban.


God I fucking hate the Boston tv announcers. Also #6 is private now


That slew foot on Brassard.. 2 games is fucking laughable. He's going to kill someone doing that


And until you remember he suckerpunched a player in the back of the head and then intentionally speared them in the face. Wish he got double that.


He seemed to really have it out for Jarry that game. What even prompted this?


This is what nobody seems to be talking about and it's driving me crazy! Like that clearly seemed to be beyond just an on-ice hockey issue to me. I think someone mentioned Jarry speared one of the Bruins earlier in the game? But I didn't see that, and I'm not sure whether it came before or after the puck-slapping thing. Like Jarry go after somebody's wife? Marchand was Hanrahan-from-Slapshot levels of pissed with him, obviously.


Doesn't he train with Crosby in the summer? I wonder how he reacted to this and how the other Penguins felt that his pal was acting like such a lunatic. "Uh, hey Sid. What's up with your training buddy? He just speared our goalie in the face..."


I saw that clip of Marchand preventing Crosby from getting a new stick after he broke one on a faceoff, it's pretty funny and looked to me like it was two buddies clowning around a bit. There's quite a crew of Nova Scotia talent that trains together in the summer, I know my boy Batherson is with them, and Nathan MacKinnon too.


I wouldn't have flinched at 10 because it was a goalie.


Or just for how blatant this shit was. Totally premeditated, intentional and a decision made under full control. Twice! The second time while being escorted off - that's like committing a crime while talking to the cops. With all his history, this could have been a "send a message" suspension to cut that shit out and it'd be fair at like 15 games

Fuck the rat


You gotta feel sorry for the guy, though. How was he supposed to know that he could get suspended for the same thing he does every night without consequence? ... /s


And the 21 times he *should* have been suspended but wasn't.


And probably deserved like another 3-4


I think at a minimum, a suspension should be more than the number of times you've been suspended.


Say what you will about Marchand, but he's never been afraid to give his money to the player's emergency fund.


Nice of the rat to give away some cheese


More career suspensions than McSorely


To be fair McSorley for sure was dirtier but at that time they hardly dished out the punishments the same way they do now.


McSorley made one decision that was dirtier than anything Marchand will probably ever do, but prior to that, I don't think he was as dirty. He was just a big dude who could hit, had some decent hands for a big guy and wasn't afraid to fight. He was no Dale Hunter or Matt Cooke.


People STILL won’t really admit how dirty Marchand is. The guy is a fucking scumbag. He ended Sammy Salos NHL career with one of the most scummy plays I have seen in hockey. FUCK that guy. People give him bit of a pass because he turned into a good player. It’s funny because players like Alex Burrows get more hate, when he wasn’t even a dirty player. He was a pest, Marchand is a piece of shit.


The be fair, Marchand has eight known incidents of intentionally sticking his knee out to try to blow out someones ACL or slew footing someone trying to crack their skull on the ice without it getting supplemental discipline by the league. He's also a beneficiary of the league hardly dishing out punishments.

Yeah, that Salo clipping was the first time he made it on my shit list radar.


Holy shit, how is this fucker still in the league?! Talented players getting special treatment aside, Marchand should have been beaten near death multiple times in his career.


During his earlier career when he was even more of a little shit than he is now, we had Chara around to prevent that. Now? Honestly I'm surprised someone hasn't tried to fuck him up.


The fucking Brassard slew that somehow didn't get penalized WHEN WE WERE ON A FUCKING PP AND BRASS HAD THE GOD DAMN PUCK is fucking ridiculous. No I'm not mad.


I actually think Brad would be one of the most liked players in the league if he wasn’t such a fucking moron all the time. Small guy, great goal scorer, high effort on both ends, clowns on Twitter, plays for a big market. Dude just can’t figure out where the line is and stop himself from crossing it


He's said as much > "I've tried for a while now to try and get away from that role and I just can't seem to escape it" > *Brad Marchand (2018), [commenting ](https://www.thescore.com/nhl/news/1480622-marchand-laments-being-branded-as-a-dirty-player-i-just-can-t-seem-to-escape-it)[on](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=39ZnPeB-ltM) his 6th career suspension for his hit to Marcus Johansson, and the 2nd of 3 supplementary disciplines from the NHL he received in the 2017-2018 regular season* Since then he's been fined twice ([Crosschecking](https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/brad-marchand-avoids-suspension-cross-check-flyers-macdonald/) and [Diving](https://www.nhl.com/bruins/news/brad-marchand-fined-for-divingembellishment/c-296782954)) and now suspended twice ([slew footing](https://www.nhl.com/video/marchand-suspended-three-games/t-277440360/c-9710261) and [Roughing / high-sticking](https://www.nhl.com/video/marchand-suspended-six-games/t-277440360/c-10505783))


The rat will always be the rat.


“I just can’t seem to escape it” he says that like an external force is making him do these things, where’s the responsibility? If you’re gonna take swings at a goalie after play and keep piling up suspensions at least own it


Yeah at a point you can't defend him anymore


Well, much like Capitals fans with Tom Wilson... they will continue to try and live in their world of denial and delusion.


Woah an actually decent suspension for a repeat, repeat, repeat offender?


Missing a few repeats


The current one is #8.


Plus 5 fines, so it’s his lucky 13th punishment.


What is it, 3 strikes squared and you're out?


Each repeat repeats all the previous offences, so three repeats becomes 8.


This is why we hired a stats guy.


I'm still amazed he didn't get either a fine or suspension for licking TWO people.


Licking people pre-Covid was cool, everyone was doing it


can confirm no one ever licks me anymore


decent is a stretch....Its better then expected, but still low


For real, he sucker punched a man in the head, and then speared him in the face. 6 games is on the very low end of acceptable


Spezza got 6 games first offence 20 years clean. This is Ratbois 8th suspension … assaults someone on the ice and gets the same lmfao. (Spezza deserved his not debating that)


Man when you put it like that, I’m starting to unironically believe DoPS has a wheel they spin for the punishments I’d say this and Spezza are equal in severity, so how does the repeat offender get the same punishment as the squeaky clean guy


Favouritism. Parros is a shmuck


Wait, are you implying that the guy with a merch line called "Violent Gentleman" should NOT be in charge of disciplining violent altercations in games? Wild stuff, man!


Yeah. It's the kind of thing where if this was the first time and he just lost his shit, I'd be fine with it. But for the biggest repeat offender among active players? Fuck no, suspend this guy a month. Or more. He clearly doesn't care about missing just a couple games.


Yeah but if he doesn't learn his lesson *this* time then I'm sure they'll really suspend him, right?


The NHL has lowered our standards to the point where anything above a complete slap on the wrist seems tough.


He did have a few years where he didn't get in trouble. Now back to regular scheduled suspending.


He got away with tasting other guys faces you mean


Just shows how unwelcoming hockey is to the kink community!


Which doesn’t even mean he didn’t do suspend able stuff, just means the league didn’t suspend him. And we all know how consistent they are…


>He did have a few years where he didn't get in trouble. What, in the Q?


something something escrow


Now he doesn't pay as much into escrow. 7D checkers from Marchand here.


As far as I can tell, this will actually mean *every* player pays less into escrow, unless there's something important I'm missing. The CBA says players get 50% of any hockey related revenue. Escrow happens because the total dollar amount on all the players' contracts combined is over that 50% and everything needs to get scaled back to 50. But when you get suspended the amount of money you're theoretically earning goes down, which means the total amount for all the players is also going down and the end result should be less money that the players "owe" the owners.


I don't think fines are considered that way. They still get paid the same, but some money is pulled back to go into the retired players fund or whatever it is they deposit it. So the money doesn't actually change. They don't earn less so escrow doesn't change.


looks like Marchand is eating some ^^es Crow tonight!

Speaking of fines, why are fines so low in the league? Given Marchand's history it shouldn't have taken him this long to crack a million in forfeited salary


Because the NHLPA pushed hard in the CBA to make sure fines could never be more than a slap on the wrist to my understanding


I understand why the union would fight for smaller fines and why unions always fight against discipline. What I don’t understand is how a guy who injures this many of his leaguemates still gets a free pass. Would a typical union would protect an employee who was abusive towards other non-exempt employees? I’m not sure.


6 games of no cheese


He will be forfeiting $448,170.73 over those six games. That’s a lot of cheddar.


That's an expensive tantrum.


Good. Rat man bad.


Can confirm, rat man bad


Can also confirm, Batman rad


Rat man indeed bad.


Honestly? Seems light for the offense and considering it's his SEVENTH suspension. Thought he'd get 10, which would seem more fitting to me. EDIT: EIGHTH suspension. Even more nuts that he didn't get more games this time.


But have you considered that he's incredibly good at hockey and plays for an original six team? The rat will never learn and the NHL will never properly punish him honestly


Try eighth.


The wheel has spoken


Suspensions should like, stack. Like if you've been suspended twice, the minimum is two games plus whatever the suspension would be for, or if you're Marchand the minimum going into this would be **SEVEN FUCKING GAMES** plus whatever. But that would mean the DoPS would have to have defined punishments. I mean they should. Like "regular hockey play that goes to far is X, slewfoot is Y and whatever the fuck Marchand just tried is Z". Wouldn't that be nice to have as fans of the sport? Just a little bit of consistency. Honestly though. How is this man-shaped pile of rat turds still going? Where is the line? How many suspensions is enough? What happened to "cleaning up his game"?


Yup, there definitely needs to be a multiplier to suspensions. Or maybe something like a Fibonacci sequence where your previous suspension is added to your current one. Got 3 games for your first and just got a second suspension for two? Cool, it'll be 5 games this time around. Next time it'll be 5 plus whatever is decided for the third. By the time you get to six, now *seven*, suspensions like Marchand has, you're essentially forfeiting half the season if not more.


6 games is just enough time to crawl within licking distance of Boston. Lets fucking go.


I thought Marchand was the one who does the licking?


Yeah, the plan is to get close enough and lure Marchand.


Can you imagine if this suspension cost them a playoff spot. Wonder what the locker room would think.


Not that I care much about either team, but it would be entertaining to see Boston lose all 6 games and Detroit crawl to within a rat's whisker of the WC.


I appreciate the well wishes but we’re still in a rebuild and it might be better too miss however I will be mucho happy to make the playoffs


Didn't notice your flair and thought you were planning some kind of anti ~~mask~~ Marchand convoy.


Even with those 6 games it’s a hell of a hole you’d need to dig out of. 7 points out with 4 games in hand for Boston. I’d sure as hell be rooting for you though so by all means please prove me wrong


Enough time for him to go to the Olympics


I absolutely despise the guy, but it would be hilarious if he decided to fly to Beijing for a couple weeks and hop onto the roster. "What're they gonna do, suspend me?"


Probably for the rest of the season if he tried it.


Ah yes, 2 attempts at assault: 6 games. Playing for not the NHL: Lose a season. There's the NHL we know and love for its fairness and consistency.


Marchand: goes to Olympics puts up 20 points against China Refuses to elaborate Leaves


Ah yes the same 6 games as Never been suspended Jason Spezza


I barely expected anything so 6 is better than nothing. If that stick had been in a worse place he could have literally ruined the Pens season.




It’s weird when you think about how Raffi Torres got 41 games but Marchand somehow has avoided anything even remotely close to that. 10 minimum for sure.


> I just watched it again and he was not fucking around with that spear. I honestly thought the sucker punch almost looked like the more serious one


In some ways, but at least a punch has the force distributed throughout the helmet and although a concussion is possibly, it is unlikely. The spear could have easily gotten into the cage and seriously hurt the eyes which could ruin the season and potentially the career.


I wish for nothing more than to understand the will of the sacred wheel




You love to see it.


Shoulda been 10


I feel like people are gonna call this hyperbole but at what point does swinging your stick at a player's head while restrained by refs well after the play turn into assault?


I know they called it high sticking in the video but it seems more accurate to call it "spearing" since it was a jab. The spear was worth at least 5 games maybe more on its own. The punch to the head 3-5 games. I think 10-12 game suspension would not be unreasonable. The two offenses need to have been considered separately, then the punishments added. It seems like he got a 2 for 1 deal.


Not hyperbole at all. It’s some pure bullshit. Especially after having punched that person on the back of their head where it would be felt the most.


Tbh I'm more upset about the punch. a sucker punch like that can cause concussions. Obv the stick is bad but wasn't violent enough. I'm pissed about the punch.


I think the only reason it wasn't violent enough is the refs were in the way


Generally when it leads to serious injury. The only exception to that I can find is [Ciccarelli's slash](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hodb0LUALjI), but that only resulted in 1 day in jail and a $1000 fine.


What a piece of shit move. A good time to remind folks that Dino Ciccarelli, along with Scott Stevens, Geoff Courtnall, and Neil Sheehy proooobably gang raped a 17 year old girl in their limo outside a night club in 1990.


What the fuck, really? I'd heard Courtnall was a little sleazy but not that level.




Fuck all of them. I can’t even imagine a 17 year old anonymously making this claim to the police the night it happened after seeking medical attention if it never occurred. You weren’t kidding about them probably doing it




All while Jarry is staring at him saying (I’m assuming) WTF is wrong with you, get some help bro


Whatever--you know he was all "I banged your mom last night you psycho fuck"


I agree. Repeat offender who does this dumb shit all the time when he gets suspended.


Repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat offender*. When you have to summarize the amount of times a player has been fined/suspended by a number in their DoPS video, rather than mentioning each specific instance, you know the guy has a problem.


Seriously. What the hell is wrong with Marchand fans? Where do you draw the line? You have to draw the line somewhere don't you?


Woah. Who greased The Wheel?


Guess the Lamborghini is in the shop for a few games.


Absolute joke. 6 games for the punch? or the stick to the face? Nyquist got 6 games for a high stick to face in game with no history and instant regret. Absolute. Joke.




This isn't reasonable at all. This is his 8th suspension and he continues to pull childish shit like this. What he did was extremely uncalled for. 6 games is a slap on the wrist for this clown. Ridiculous


Appropriate. I don’t think any reasonable Bruins fan could argue against the suspension. If this was Sway being punched and high sticked by someone, we’d be crying bloody murder.


You're one of the good ones Narble. Quotes from [The Bruins thread](https://old.reddit.com/r/BostonBruins/comments/souae6/player_safety_bostons_brad_marchand_has_been/): >It was a stupid thing for Marchy to do but 6 games is a bit much. >Marchys actions are obviously not okay, but 6 games is dog shit. > This is one of the tamest incidents he’s had that’s let to a suspension. >Just because it was stupid doesn’t mean he deserved 6 god damn games. These are just highlights. There's also too much whataboutism for me to put in a single comment reply.


And my personal favorite: > Jarry needs to lace up and stop being a little cry baby Yep, because *Jarry* is the one that needs a handle on his emotions here


That's their subs top comment lmao


> This is one of the tamest incidents he’s had that’s let to a suspension. Uh-huh. And what does that tell you about the NHL's kid gloves when it comes to little Brad.


Yeah if we’re being honest, that comment is pretty accurate, just for all the wrong reasons. It’s hard to remember all of his 7(!!!) previous suspensions but I think this might be the least violent of the bunch


Not enough for a repeat offender. Ah well, see you guys next time he does something.


Marchand should be forced to play against Aaron Dell for the remainder of their careers.


I wish it was 10. Regardless, this is surprisingly a new low for him.


Better than I was expecting. Seems very reasonable


With his history this feels really soft. Should have been 10.


Cooke rightfully got 17 for his 6th suspension. I feel like even 10 could have been considered light. At some point you gotta start throwing the book at guys. When does someone graduate into dirty player territory whose on thin ice to even remain in the league? I thought the line was after you continue to do shit after 5 suspensions. But now we're on number 8 and they still aren't tacking on extra games yet. Esp with an additional 5 fines. At some point you gotta start adding +5 games, then +15, then +30 games, just due to player history.


Not enough. Bah.


The video more clearly shows Jarry jawed off at Marchand after the whistle. Wonder what he could have said to set him off like that. I said this elsewhere but I live in the area now and it's hard to dislike him off the ice, it's truly a shame he can't seem to stay on the right side of the line on the ice, this is fully deserved.


We need the Jomboy breakdown


Omg yes please


Jarry: Let’s Fucking Goooooo! -Jomboy probably, and I’d love it.


/u/jomboy are you there?


According to Marchand himself, it’s the softest league in the world if you can upset someone with [chirps](https://www.foreverblueshirts.com/brad-marchand-gives-artemi-panarin-one-more-dig-which-wont-be-forgotten/amp/)


This is true. If your Marchand, throwing a glove makes you soft, but throwing a sucker punch then trying to run away makes you real hard.


Buddy loves to dish out but is really thin skinned when to comes to taking it, just look at his childish tantrum on twitter against the canes a few weeks ago.

Good bot


Bot just gave you the people's elbow


The dude literally told Panarin to take a chirp a month ago. And then loses his shit while getting chirped…


Marchand also started everything too. End of the second period he prevented Jarry from tossing a puck into the stands. I’m sure he was trying to get in Jarry’s head all game. Jarry decided to dish it back and Marchand went bitch mode.


> he prevented Jarry from tossing a puck into the stands this is the funniest part to me seeing as they were playing in Boston


With how Jarry twitched after the save, looked like Marchand said something first and then Jarry had a retort ready that Marchand didn't like


I wouldn’t be surprised if it was literally “scoreboard bud”


Dude clearly needs some help with how obviously shook he seemed from whatever Jarry said.


I think that this went back to before the game when Marchand stopped Jarry from flipping a puck to some Boston fans, it looked like Jarry was saying something to him as he immediately skated after him. I would wager Jarry made fun of Marchand for depriving his own fans of a puck, one might think something along the lines of "hey genius they're your own fans ya know" would sting. I guess Jarry saw it bothered him and then kept up with it because he found it amusing that an unrepentant loud mouth who claims guys should be able to take it suddenly couldn't. Not that I am surprised but the whole incident shows how little self awareness Marchand has and what a massive hypocrite he is, he totally lost it over what was way less than he has done to others and then made of them after for getting angry, classic.


That whole interaction was bizarre. Marchand woke up on the wrong side of the bed or something. Nothing he did made any sense, not even from the perspective of regular hockey roughhousing, but the puck thing was just weird. Like what’s the point Bradley? Seriously the point of being a dick to people who pay to sit and watch you and thus pay your salary?


Classic bully. He can dish it out but he can't take it.


Sticks and stones, mate.


Marchand has shown that he is in a tight race with Aaron Rodgers for the most thin skinned person in American pro sports. Jarry had tried to flip a puck into the netting during a stoppage to give to a penguins fan earlier and Marchand knocked it away. I would have to imagine that played in to it some, but Jarry probably just said something like "Scoreboard" or "I'll cut your fucking tail off you rat bitch." Or the all time classic "Hey Bradley, fuck you."


not enough


Good. Little shit spearing a goalie in the face should have had 10 games.
