Personally for me, I think Brad Marchand is a great hockey player that does his job well. I love watching people get all spun up about him. It's hilarious. Did he take a dive, I don't know, I wasn't on the ice. Did he draw a penalty yes. The fact remains, Marchand was the recipient of a questionable leg-on-leg check. That is a penalty, last time I checked the rule book. What's the on-ice official supposed to do, not give Brendan Smith a penalty?
Marchand on twitter crowd doubting legitimacy of his pain after collision w/Brendan Smith: "Thats why they're on twitter and I'm in the NHL"

Marchand on injury on Smith hit: "I twisted my knee up a little bit when I landed there. A little scare there. My leg was kind of tingling."
