And Marchand doesn't fit that description? Pot calling the kettle black ...
He does fit that description but his partying seems to be reserved for the offseason. No one has ever questioned Marchand's off the ice actions during the season to the best of my knowledge.
Rowdy, these guys go into new cities every week. They dont sit in their rooms playing xbox.
No they don't always stay in their rooms and play xbox...They go to dinner and as I witnessed in Edmonton a few years back ( and a few times before that), they go out in gaggles. Lill groups. I saw a group of 4 or 5 then I saw a group of about 5. All dressed nice with skull caps on and collars turned up. I watched them come back both from the game they just played and from dinner ( as I was sitting in the lounge that they have to pass by and not one of them crawled in for a cocktail. I saw the same thing another times when the Blackhawks were staying at this same hotel. Yes. I spend a lot of time in the lounge. You would too if you get 50% off food & beverages !!!! Not saying they don't. I have sat down with a past NHL'er, Brent Ashton ( from my school) and he said that ya they got out but not as much as people think. If your a drinker, I guess it doesn't matter if your an NHL player or a plumber, your going to drink and party.
We are talking edmonton though. And dont get me wrong i love edmonton. Best hockey city in the world in my eyes. But i know a few guys one now retired that i am good friends with. They party hard. In the summer even worse. They train like dogs still. But when they go to montreal, la, ny and places like that they go out. The thing with going out is its a young mans gm. Then you grow up, get married and have kids. I stopped drinking as soon as i had a child. Mainly bc he didnt care if or when i was hungover. Haha.
Seguin, marchand, doughty. Simmonds, carter, richards etc etc all known to like the night life. And who wouldnt. Amazingly hot girls is the catch, drinking and being rich and being treated like a god in most places makes it even more of a draw.
A lot of the guys just get expensive call girls bc they are married. The pro athlete life style is alive and well.
