Bryan Marchment
SHARKS D
In 14 seasons through Sunday he had 153 points while racking up 1,948 penalty minutes. He had been suspended II times (four for kneeing incidents), missing a total of 34 games.

Darius Kasparaitis
PENGUINS D
In 10 seasons through Sunday he had scored 126 points while racking up 1,086 penalty minutes. He had been suspended twice, missing a total of three games.

THE VERDICT: Both keep opponents on edge, and Kasparaitis is better on D, but nobody breaks rules—and legs—like Marchment.
