No. I don't see him trying to end careers. I do wish he would clean it up so he would get more respect for his talent, which is immense. 5 overtime goals this season and 2nd in ppg, he should be considered for mvp, but he is too much of a bad reputation for a major award.

Current? Yes he is top 2 or 3.

Ever? Dear God no. Teams would pick up bruisers off the street with the sole intention of ending careers.

Raffi Torres is the worst. Just my opinion.

Live yes I'm 42. There is a difference between tough and dirty though. Also the style of play was much different in the 70s. A lot of good examples being brought up and I don't know if there's a huge difference between any of them and Marchand. All the guys that tried to end careers get brought up and the amount of knees and slew foots I've seen from him, to me, put MarchNd in the conversation.

Edit....also I don't consider most of the pure goons to be in the dirty category. They had a job and for the most part you saw them coming.

There is a difference between fighting and dirty, intent-to-injure plays.

Not many of the cheap shot artists (e.g., Claude Lemieux, Ulf Samuelsson, Esa Tikkanen, etc.) were terribly effective with their fists and often hid behind the team's enforcer.
