Marleau was the Sharks top penalty killing forward.
Marleau scored the game winner in Game 7 tonight.
Marleau scored the game winner in Game 3 OT.

The media loves Thornton and is quick to criticize Marleau but to hell with his critics! When Roenick on Versus called him out after game 5 and basically put the weight of the team's lack of success for ending Detroit on his shoulders I was royally peeved. YES, he is streaky with scoring but he is also CLUTCH. When a big goal is most needed he comes through time and again.

Marleau is an all-time great. His soft hands around the crease, his clutch play, his penalty killing and turnovers and breakaways. May he be an ATD regular from here on as a great utility forward in a Bottom-6 role (and could handle 2nd pp duty in an all-time context).
