Fuuuccckkkk you I wanted Marchand.Bradley Marchand. And with that pick our team name is officially the Cup Checks
A certain someone didn't send me a PM (and it appears the alerts definitely aren't working, as @veritas' ping didn't pop up either).
Regardless, I was pretty worried that someone was going to take my guy, but it looks like he slipped to me. In keeping with the Jeremy Jacobs' Penny Pinchers draft strategy, I'm drafting a guy who combines top tier production at a bargain price. This guy has developed into an offensive threat who can score 30 goals and put up 70 points a year despite playing limited time on the power play, he's arguably the best faceoff man in the NHL, and an absolute menace of a defensive forward who might well have brought home his first Selke this year had the season not been cut short. Oh yeah, and he's paid only a hair over $4 million a year for the next two seasons, both of which will be on the right side of 30. For less than the annual salary of a Tavares or a Panarin, JJ's Penny Pinchers are proud to pair Nate MacKinnon with Sean Couturier, C.
And yes, I feel quite dirty lauding a goddamn Flyer like that.
