Marleau is definitely overpaid, but there are two points to consider.

1. Trading him will not make the sharks better now or in the future

2. He is generally one of the better playoff guys on the team, obviously not always, but he has had great PO moments too.


Also he is the only guy who I think has a chance to retire a lifetime shark, and he probably would if that were his choice.

I say let him play out the contract, but then try to resign him for cheap. I just don't like trading away the most important player in the history of your franchise as some knee-jerk move to allocate 1.5 million extra of capspace somewhere else.

I've been a huge critic of Marleau before, but anyone can just come here and say "OMG he sux trd his a$s!!1!"

Sorry to blow your mind, but it's not that simple.
