I am not surprised, but at the same time I kinda am, if that makes sense. I understand why the league suspended Marchy. He is a repeat offender and that was a stupid dirty play. But at the same time, no one in league history has gotten suspended for even 1 game for this. Never ever ever. So that is why I am kinda surprised. Marchy should have gotten suspended. He made stupid play and he has been doing shit like this way too much. But 2 game?! That is a little aggressive… I mean he got kicked out of the game Tuesday for 2 and a half periods.
If it was up to me, I would have made it a 1 game suspension. Maybe if they wanna get him good give him a fine as well. But 2 games?! Come on now.
While this isn’t great to lose your best player when you are battling for a playoff seed, it is not the end of the world. The team was able to pull of a big win Tuesday basically without Brad. And honestly, they still have a good shot at winning these last 2 games. Ottawa is without their best player tonight and Washington locked up the Presidents Trophy last night. The Bruins should still win out with or without Marchy. So let Brad sit, give him some rest, because guess what, we are still going to the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Let’s go.
