Morning Skate 110: Marchand tells all

There's a lot going on in NHL news today. Walk with me.
Somebody called the Boston Sports Company has come out with a Bruins-themed rap about the Bru-Tang Clan name that Brad Marchand would like to use for his line with Tyler Seguin and Patrice Bergeron. Pretty funny including the Tim Thomas AKA Old Dirty Bruin line, and nice work by @marlowilliams.
Brad Marchand spills his guts in his ESPN.com diary and says that hes not going to bite into the harsh words being tossed out there by the Vancouver Canucks. Thats entering Wes Welker territory with the foot jokes.

Eric Engels has some info on Jaroslav Halak returning to Montreal as a member of the St. Louis Blues.
Dustin Penner is having a terrible season and now hes injured his back chowing down on his wife delicious pancakes. It sounds like all he needs is elastic band sweatpants and hell officially be giving up on life.
The 10 most surprising players of the seasons first half including Tyler Seguin, who has really turned it on in the second half of the year.
Elliotte Friedman has his 30 thoughts including the reasoning behind the NHLPA tossing out the realignment plan, and some extra leftovers from the CanucksBruins game last weekend.
For something completely different: a New England staple called Friendlys Restaurant is becoming an endangered species due to bankruptcy. Its a major bummer because it means no more Strawberry Fribbles when theyre all gone.
