I would be willing to bet Marleau wouldn't re-sign here. He would leave for a competitor. Leave us with nothing but two empty voids in our top 6. Both he and Frolov are going to be teammates in Detroit this time next year if this is true.
Unless the rumor that Marleau nixed any deal outside of California because of his wife is true, then he very well stay. Otherwise he probably would have just been sent to Ottawa and we wouldn't need to be involved at all. I'd think you have seen enough of Marleau to know the kind of player he is and that when comparing him to Frolov, the stats are really the ONLY thing that is similar between the two.

Us adding Stoll so SJ can get Heatley is total bullcrap. SJ HAS to be sending someone else somewhere, if any just for the cap.
