Brad Marchand gets humiliated in ESPN stats projections!

They cannot be serious!



It’s the time of the year where many stats projections come out for the start of the 2023-24 seasons as fans build their fantasy rosters with the best names out there. It’d make sense to see Boston Bruins’ Brad Marchand gets selected first by many, however, doubts have arisen when ESPN shared their stats projections and tore into the poor star forward, projecting Marchand will only put up 46 points this upcoming season!

Brad Marchand gets humiliated in ESPN stats projections!

This is the same guy we believed will succeed Patrice Bergeron as Bruins’ captain! I mean, a year ago, he scored 32 goals and 80 points in 70 games. That was before undergoing hip surgery on both of his hips during in the summer of 2022, but he finished the season with 21 goals and 67 points in 73 games.

ESPN is now expecting for him to drop again?

There is hope in Boston that Marchand can return to being the elite left-winger he was prior to his hip surgery, however, ESPN does not appear to be as confident…

Sure, Marchand is coming off his lowest goal scoring total (21) since his first full season in the NHL in 2010-2011, but there is a sense that it can only go up from here…

With a full regular offseason of training post hip surgery, there is hope that Marchand will return to being the premier goal scorer in the NHL.

No matter what ESPN may project…

Other brutal projections: 

Marchand is not the only one getting some tough love by the ESPN stats projections. In Pittsburgh, Penguins star forwards Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin are projected at 89 and 68 points respectively, while new defenseman Erik Karlsson is believed to be able to rack up 97 points. 

Jonathan Huberdeau is Calgary is projected to record 59 points, while they have Alex Killorn going 11-14-25 in 82 games this season with his new team, the Anaheim Ducks.

You have to see the full projections to process and digest all of it...
