Reactions To Marchand’s Lick
Jay D – @BLTJay
If you have been anywhere near the online hockeyverse in the last 12 hours, then you know all about it. The Lick. Marchand did it again! And people seem to have a reeeeeeal problem with it this time (which is kind of weird because he did it like two weeks ago as well).
If the NHL is going continue to let Brad Marchand lick his opponents without consequence – an unsportsmanlike penalty or fine – may I suggest they remove the instigator penalty so the players can handle this situation internally. The game is better than this. 🤦🏻♀️

The NHL is on the clock now with Marchand. Absolute joke if they don’t fine or suspend him. Complete embarrassment.

If you don’t think Brad Marchand is an embarrassment to the Boston Bruins… You’re right. He’s an embarrassment to the entire NHL. pic.twitter.com/NxTGxQ2xy3 — Mike Armstrong (@ArmstrongGN) May 5, 2018
So I guess people aren’t too happy with Brad. Understandable. Some people had fun with it too though:
PK asked what his reaction would be if he was licked on ice a la Brad Marchand. “I’d probably enjoy it.” Laughs. “It’s weird … Might be funny at time but then you think:”I just got licked on the ice.” #subban #preds — Mike Zeisberger (@Zeisberger) May 5, 2018

So what do you think? Are people overreacting? Is Marchand as big of a rat as everyone thinks?
And do you think he should be allowed to do this/fined or suspended? Let us know in the comments!
