  1. NHL players name the Top 5 “Dirtiest player in the league.” Who made the list? Every fan and pundit around the National Hockey League has an opinion on just about everything that is hockey related, but one group that we do not often get to hear from on interesting topics surrounding the game are the players themselves. Thankfully The Athletic has started an annual tradition in which they survey hundreds of players from around the National Hockey League and get some feedback on some of those very same topics, all the while allowing the players to maintain their anonymity. One of the most interesting questions posed to players this year was one regarding who the "dirtiest player in the league" currently is, and the responses from the players proved to be pretty interesting. I think it will come as no surprise to anyone that there was a clear winner this time around, with Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand claiming a whopping 29% of all the votes submitted by players. The Bruins veteran remains the NHL's most notorious agitator and it seems as though his reputation as a player who keeps things on the edge at all times has not diminished in the slightest over time. It is not just that he was selected as the dirtiest player in the league however, some players had some pretty unflattering things to say about the Bruins forward. “It’s disgusting what the league lets Marchand get away with. He’s got no respect for anybody. Makes me sick,” said an unidentified Central Division player as per The Athletic. “Let’s go with Brad Marchand. He’s a little prick,” said an unidentified player in the Metropolitan Division. Marchand was of course not the only player to receive votes, and in fact there were a few names on the list who also found themselves getting quite a few mentions for this dubious award. Rounding out the Top 5 were Tom Wilson of the Washington Capitals with 24% of the vote, Matthew Tkachuk of the Calgary Flames with 11% of the vote, Radko Gudas of the Capitals with 7% of the vote and Antoine Roussel of the Vancouver Canucks with 3% of the vote.
  2. Empty net goals = wins
  3. Coach Green obviously trusts these guys to go out in the last minutes in a tight game to hold the lead People like to poke fun at the empty net goals. I see a team that isn't squandering late leads and is getting the 2 points. This line has had a lot to do with that.
  4. Best in the business, back in the day not all the Canucks games were on TV, He just had a way to describe the flow and excitement of the game.
  5. Backstrom will be 37 years old in the last year of that $9.1M / yr contract!
  6. Look, I despise Tchucky, I do not like him at all, He is a #1 Ahole but, He didn't pick his spot and go after a smurf he went after the toughest guy on the opposing team, maybe one of the toughest in the League, not only once but a second time
