(all my opinion obviously not trying to pick fights)
Playoff wise there actually very similar.

Marchand = .66 PPG
Lucic = .56 PPG

Remember though that Lucic has nearly double the playoff GP then Marchand. Between the two Lucic is a rare commodity in the NHL.

The major difference and one key reason I see Lucic getting more money then Marchand.....Not a lot of teams in the NHL have a 6'4 LW who can score 30 goals put up 60 points all while physically dominating (when he wants) and intimidating the opposition night in and night out
