    I can't access the article. Was this anything more than a few missed meetings?

    Does anyone know what Marchand said, or was alleged to have said?

    Thanks for any info.

    McAvoy said he was late for team bus after game and for a specials team meeting. Sounds like Marchand called him out and said something like “you’re not a kid anymore, that stuff doesn’t fly in the big leagues”.

    McAvoy said it was senior leader on team, and although reticent to acknowledge it was Marchand, did agree it was.

    This all came straight from McAvoy. Said he idolizes leaders on this team and endeavors to be like them one day. Also said he was glad to be in a place where this stuff matters and is raised and addressed rather than somewhere where bad behavior flies with no implications.

    I actually agree with this. Unfortunately part and parcel of playing for a team in a big media town.

    Ya Marchand shouldn't have addressed it in private too. No need for the media spectacle or distraction

    was talking about Charlie. I say we trade him ASAP before this gets out of hand. :sarcasm:

    Marchand's only fault here was bringing it up on the ridealong segment with Haggs, but it was clear Marchand was just busting his chops a little not "calling him out" publicly. Just a stupid thing that got blown way out of proportion.

    It's wild to me that fans of this team haven't missed out on enough good years of franchise players and still feels the need to run guys out of town for time to time.

    It's not like McAvoy was trying to bang his teammate's wife or anything. Oh wait we don't talk about that here.

    Good on Marchand for calling him out. Would have been better had a good citizen like Chara or Bergeron did, but proud of 63

    God I hate the talk radio in this town. Please stop chasing our stars out of town before they have a chance to mature. Sounds like pretty regular stuff here.

    On the bright side. Hearing about Marchand as a leader makes me happy.

    How are they chasing him out of Town? The media wasn't looking for dirt, it was handed to them and they asked the team President a question...

    People downplayed Seguin as well I remember. Glad a teammate stood up and did it public. Will curb a lot of that.

    Bruins’ Bruce Cassidy Downplays Charlie McAvoy’s Admitted Tardiness





    In Dupont’s piece, McAvoy identified Marchand as the player who called him out on his behavior.“We really addressed it there, the habits that I need to have,” McAvoy said. “As a younger guy on the team and someone who’s growing. He’s really looking out for my future. How I carry myself now will set the standard for how I am for the rest of my career.“And for that I couldn’t be more thankful.”Marchand himself downplayed McAvoy’s issues while speaking to Haggerty on Monday.“Chucky is a great kid and an awesome teammate,” Marchand said. “He’s a very good person, very good teammate and very good kid, and he’s going to be a great hockey player for this team for a long time. But everybody goes through things where you’re coming in as a new guy, and you have to learn the way and the ropes. Things like that happen.“ … It’s not an issue in the room, and it wasn’t really necessary for Kevin Paul DuPont to make it an issue. Chucky is a great teammate and great player for this team, and it’s a non-issue for this room.”

    He's signing for 8 years!

    Charlie handled it well.

    He must not have known if he made a big deal out of it, he could be a Ranger :sarcasm:

    Could have been a management tactic as well to see how he responded before they dole out that huge contract offer. Whatever it was he passed with flying colors and I hope we see him here for a long time
