This guy is the real deal. He skates. He passes. He scores. He knows how to throw them (you'd think he came out of the WHL). The Bruins gotta sign him long time.

Funny how confidence makes all the diffrence in this league! He could not buy a goal last year and now he looks really good. If he would have started the year like this he would probably win the calder.

Easy, there. I'm guessing he gets either 2 or 3/$1.75. If he hits 20 goals, he'll want more, but he doesn't have a lot of leverage. That means he won't want to sign long term at less that $2M and it would be foolish for the Bruins to sign him for big dollars before they have to. By big dollars - Marchand could eventually get up to $4M if he's over 20 goals/year and playing his game. That's his third contract, though.

Enough of the analytical crap ! If he scores, who cares...He's a keeper !

the only thing is PK is trying to hurt him every time he's on the ice ...Thornton should go after PK next game
