Brad Marchand‘s initial reaction to his friend and frequent linemate Tyler Seguin being traded wasn’t anger or disappointment but rather concern that he’d be next. “It came as a bit of a shock” Marchand said of the trade. “I think there were definitely some guys that thought we were pretty safe and it was a bit of a wakeup call that every day you come in you’ve got to make sure you’re doing everything you have to do to stay here. I don’t think anyone really expected Segs to be shipped out that early but it definitely took a little while to sink in.” Marchand clarified that he was one of the guys who may have gotten a little too comfortable and that after Peter Chiarelli moved on from Seguin and his contract he feared that his days in Boston could also be numbered.
