    4 dirty plays, 1 on Johnsson is iffy on intention but it's Marchand so he doesn't get benefit of the doubt and it really does look like he extended his leg unnaturally for just skating to trip up johnsson who had a clear path to the puck

    FYI: Kessel got a 3 game suspension for a similar slash on John Scott as a non-repeat offender when Marchand is probably the biggest repeat offender out there.

    meh.. that's nothing compared to the cheap shots on johansson and duclair (possible career ending injury). the NHL will let him run around until he seriously injures a star

    Didn't watch the videos, but I'd support just banning him from the league. The dirtiest player the game has seen in quite a while.

    Maybe someone needs to feed Marchand his teeth since the NHL can't be bothered to get rid of this nonsense. At some point Marchand is going to end a players career, or worse.

    So Marchand is what it would be like if Sidney Crosby and Matt Cooke had a baby?

    As much as i hate Marchand, only one of these that look bad, is the two-hander and even that doesn't connect properly.

    That could be a game, but it's playoffs, so probably a fine max.

    The only thing that's even questionable is the slash but won't lead to anything since 1. Doesn't even look like he hit him and 2. Reilly did the exact same thing in retaliation

    Terrible.

    He is a highly skilled player, would be a shame to lose him.

    Neutral fan here

    Basically the league suspended Kadri (and rightfully so ) for running around like an idiot with his reckless play.

    So why should the standard be any different here? Marchand was out of control tonight. But I think the NHL wants this kind of nonsense and encourages it

    Give him a game and clearly explain if he keeps it up the next one will be 5.

    exactly my thought also, the slash or attempted slash could get a game but probably won't

    Not a chance. Geez, everyone wants a suspension for every little thing anymore. It's embarrassing.

    Anyone who really believes that any of the above clips contain anything suspension worthy need to quit watching hockey and switch to figure skating competitions and soccer.

    Desperate?

    The Leafs have been crosschecking Marchand quite a bit this series. Rather low of them so if Marchand retaliates what do you expect...

    Out of control is quite the stretch however.

    I can agree with you to an extent . If those were the only 2 plays that you do a double take I think you can shrug your shoulders and move on . But he was being an absolute clown tonight (just like Kadri). So if the NHL decides they are OK with this stuff happening, they won't do much about it .

    Please stop. It is not suspension worthy. Just stop.

    not even comparable to kadris suspension. Marchand is a pest and can be stupid but kadris rampage that night was pathetic.

    also no, nothing even close to suspension worthy here.
