me too with Marchand, but I've been a big fan of him for quite some time.


yes, he's a pest. but he's also an uber talented at being pest and and the same time being offensive threat. and it's not like he was bad at scoring and generating chances.


yup, I'd love to see Marchand with the Wings, hands down

If I had to choose between the two (and I hope we don't) I'd take Marchand.  It would tick my housemate off to no end if he left Boston and came to us.

Marchand hands down. He plays with an edge and is passionate to win you can see it by the way he plays. He understands his role. Shaw is a little B****, I would punch him at a Wings autograph signing thats how much I hate the MFer.

Marchand easy.  Watching him work with Jagr and Bergeron has been awesome.




This. He hits, scores goals, gets assists aggravates the other teams top players, and off the ice is a very respectful player (watch his interviews and off work interviews).


Shaw isn't even in the same league in terms of skill with Marchand. If he played for the Wings, he would be an instant favorite.

Marchand but without the diving 

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

Don't want either player.  We need big forwards, not small ones.  Shaw is 5'11 and Marchand is 5'9.  


To answer the OP, Shaw would be a better fit.  Marchand couldn't play a chippy, annoying style here, since he wouldn't have his backup.  Our team is too soft and he'd get his ass beat all the time.  Also, Shaw is a right-handed shot, which we never have enough of.  


They're both good players in the places they're currently at, but we I think we need to look elsewhere.

According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Marchand. Shaw is a dirtbag, Marchand less of a dirtbag.


I still can't believe there isn't a pic online somewhere after Shaw took a run at Mike Richards his first game back and Richards barely dodged the check. The cameras showed Shaw on bench, he turned to teammate to his side and stuck his tongue out and smirked/laughed (I hope that doesn't sound silly, it hard to describe a dirtbag tongue out, smirk... its like saying you saw the Devil and then trying to describe it to somebody)... I asked a few people if they noticed and of course nobody did making me feel like maybe I imagined it all and was looking too closely trying to find evil.


And that isn't even counting the two flying elbows he delivered on Wings during our series...
