Not sure what more jam up the middle means. If you mean jam like sticky, then maybe Marleau isn't your best bet. If you mean jam like fast, then Patty is your guy.
If you mean jam like he has a sense a rhythm, then your screwed. Sharks haven't had a guy with rhythm since Mike Grier.
Jam = physical play.
The whole reason behind the Roy for Ott & Pardy deal was that Regier said he wanted to "up the team's compete level" and make them harder to play against.
Marleau has size, but he doesn't use it in a physical way to wear opponents down.
Regier wants to make the Sabres tougher to play against physically. I don't see adding Marleau fitting in with the couple of moves that Regier has made so far this off season and with what he's publicly talked about with regards to the center position.
