I'm not saying he's on the market and could be had for a discount price, because that's not true.
I'm saying that given the strength down the middle in San Jose, they could move him for help on the wing, blueline and in goal for the future. Whether it comes in the form of active players, prospects or draft picks.
Marleau's been running as a wing for awhile now and is pretty good at it too. He's a big body, fast and can score. The Sharks need scoring and speed. So why do they trade Marleau again? And uh, like Thornton, Marleau is gonna retire in teal.
