Well he is a repeat offender so thats probably why he got the five instead of maybe two or three. My issue with this hit is that Marchand had time to do several different things(move out of way, put shoulder into Salo's chest, put his own arms up for protection, etc)but he made the decision to go low, knee level. To me that shows intent. He decided to go that low now he pays for it. As for the sure to follow pissing match between B's fans and Canucks fans, I'm outta here.
