Agree 100%. I still remember the year the sharks beat the Avs the first time in the playoffs and they kept sending out Marleau to defend Forsberg who at the time was for my money the best player in the game. Marleau and Hannan had Forsberg so pissed off at the end of that series he was taking swings at them. Marleau learned to be defensively responsible under Sutter and from being a teammate with Ricci so he will most likely always be better than Couture.
