First of all, it's not a shot that tells the story anyway. Secondly, whether you want to say he has a gut or not, it's not his problem...his problem is his aggressiveness lacking.
People are just looking for an excuse to bag on him and pile on while he is sucking ass.
I haven't been bagging on Marleau. I'm actually with you on this one and have been supporting him lately. However, you are wrong about intermission. This season there were several shots of him standing in front of his locker or wandering around the room.
Also, people aren't necessarily using his gut as an excuse of why he's been sucking a lot lately. It's more of an argument for him not being as fit as he usually is after off-seasons, which then could be interpreted in multiple ways.
