Uh, no. Leading the team in goals like he did that year was more an example of shooting luck and coincidence that Marleau happened to suck that year and not having that much talent overall. Depth on the roster was an issue during the first three years after the lockout. The year he was second in shots was his second 90+ assist season. That's not someone you confuse with being a shooting threat. But even with that, he has dropped his shot totals significantly since that team. Yeah, the team has gotten better but a guy with the puck on his stick as much as he does should not be getting outshot by Dan Boyle year after year.

He's pretty much admitted that the dynamic is there and he's probably stubborn enough to believe that people are wrong when they say it won't work.
