Again, I doubt they're actually meeting Marleau because I don't think he'll be traded, but I'm sure if they do speak to him, they did seek permission first.
You have to get permission. I believe they would be tampering if they didn't get permission, which is punishable by the NHL.

IF any of this actually happened, then I would assume that Marleau is gone. I wouldn't really think that he would want to come back after something of this nature occurs (Wilson going as far as having another teams GM come and try and talk him into coming to their city)

Edit: Jonathan edited his after I quoted him. He might have seen my intelligent response and decided to copy me
