Brad Marchand On Tomas Plekanec: ‘I Hate Him…I Can’t Stand Him’ (Video)

Brad Marchand’s style of play as an agitator and someone who constantly gets under the opponent’s skin makes him difficult to play against. The Boston Bruins winger was in his home province of Nova Scotia on Tuesday night and attended the 2014 Phoenix House Champs for Change dinner. He fielded some questions, and one of them asked him to answer which players in the NHL irritate...

Brad Marchand On Tomas Plekanec

from Joe Haggerty of CSNNE, Canadiens center Tomas Plekanec isn’t very well-liked or well-respected within the B’s dressing room, and a national hockey audience got a taste of why when he repeatedly snapped his head back in embellishment during phantom high stick encounters against the New York Rangers in the Eastern Conference Finals. The blatant play-acting even spawned...

Potential Candidates to Wear the Habs “C”

Photo credits to Bridget Samuels via photopin.com NHL- Because the Montreal Canadiens‘ captain, Brian Gionta, signed with the Buffalo Sabres on July 1st, people are left wondering who the next captain of the storied franchise will be.

Lambert, "Stop your complaining about diving already"

Today, Ryan Lambert of Puck Daddy fame has a blog post about diving. I always love those writers and fans that tell us to stop complaining about the on-ice officials. Moreover, I also love the people that tell us to stop complaining about player embellishment.People seem particularly aggrieved these days by “the head snap,” that is, when a stick or a glove gets somewhere up near...

Time to eliminate embellishing from NHL playoffs

Enough is enough when it comes to embellishment, diving, flopping and all of the other dishonorable things creeping into the NHL game that make it much more like soccer than old-time hockey. There were plenty of voices that had enough after watching Game 4 between the Montreal Canadiens and New York Rangers with Tomas Plekanec snapping his head back on a Brian Boyle high stick that...

(Video) Fraser: Making the call (again) on embellishment

It's about time that someone said this. It adds credibility when a former NHL Official is the one that is pointing this out. As a hockey fan, I have become disgusted with the amount of embellishment that plagues the NHL and NCAA hockey. Kerry Frasier, TSN -- I concur with Mike Milbury and Eddie O's analysis with regard to obvious embellishment committed by PK Subban and...

(Video) Tomas Plekanec embellishment, Brian Boyle two minutes

This is a weak penalty in my opinion. Montreal Canadiens forward Tomas Plekanec should have gotten a Emmy for his award winning performance. No really, he should have gotten a two-minute minor for embellishment. Now lets be clear, New York Rangers forward Brian Boyle shouldn't be hitting Plekanec up high with his stick, but that's a brutal call by the officials. Plekanec...

Boston Bruins: Brad Marchand Punches Tomas Plekanec before the Face-Off

This happened right before a face-off during the third period of last night's game. Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand punches Montreal Canadiens forward Tomas Plekanec in the side of the head. This isn't going to play well with the Marchand haters. During the regular season, this would have probably started a line braul.

Murray is incompetent; series tied at 2

Loose, relaxed and business as usual was the attitude of the Montreal Canadiens during nights pre-game skate. Tomas Plekanec was poking at PK Subban during his interview, the rest of the teammates were pushing and shoving each other, and there was a confident aura amongst the skaters. Confident, they should have been. The Canadiens have scored at least 3 goals in all of their...
