Is it possible to be the best and worst at something?

According to the 2018-19 NHLPA Player Poll, the answer is yes. Boston Bruins super-pest Brad Marchand - one of the NHL's most polarizing players - was voted as both the league's best and worst trash-talker.

Here are the results for best trash-talker, based on 272 votes:

Player Team %
Brad Marchand BOS 21.3
Drew Doughty L.A. 11.8
Ryan Reaves VGK 5.5
Claude Giroux PHI 4.8
Nick Cousins ARI 3.3
Other N/A 53.3

The results for worst trash-talker - based on 256 votes - were a bit tighter:

Player Team %
Brad Marchand BOS 12.5
Antoine Roussel VAN 5.5
P.K. Subban NSH 5.1
Nick Cousins ARI 4.7
Brendan Lemieux NYR 3.5
Other N/A 68.8

Everyone knows Marchand likes to chirp on the ice, but apparently his tactics aren't for everyone. The same can be said for Arizona Coyotes forward Nick Cousins, who also surfaced on both polls.

Marchand was clearly pleased with the results.
