Who’s more annoying: Brad Marchand or Tomas Plekanec?

A Bruin and Canadien aren't fond of one another? Go figure.

Brad Marchand and Tomas Plekanec apparently don’t like each other. That much we’ve learned this week.

On Tuesday at the Phoenix House Champs for Change dinner in Canada, the Bruins winger named the Montreal center his least favorite NHLer.

"There are a few guys who really irritate me," Marchand said. "I’ve got to say at top of my list right now … Tomas Plekanec from Montreal, I hate him. Oh, I can’t stand him. But, I probably shouldn’t say that. I dislike him very much."

Plekanec found that comment fitting.

All of this raises a very important question: Who’s more annoying?

Let’s put an end to this once and for all, shall we? What’s more irritating?


Or this?


Or this?

On the one hand, Marchand has been known to drive people so mad that they imagine his face when hitting others. On the other, "Plekanec-ing" is now a thing.

It’s too bad there isn’t an advanced statistic to measure the exasperation ability, but it may be safe to say nobody comes out of this looking like a winner here.

Go ahead and weigh in — but please keep the comments free of 10-minute misconducts.
