It begs the question, why the heck we are running polls about the offseason when we're 2-0 up in the 2nd round?!...
But to play along, I'd say we need to keep Marleau - purely from an asset perspective. Trade and you get something back - let them walk in UFA and it's a 'wasted asset'.
I think we need to sit tight and see where this playoff series goes first. Sure, Pavs is garnering a nice pay rise right now but at the same time, Marleau's offseason is causing his negotiation position to plummet. Regular season means little if you perform a disappearing act in the postseason.
If this team goes to the Stanley cup finals, I don't think much tweaking will be done at all to our forward corps.
