Maybe fans don't appreciate marleau but I guarantee every GM in the NHL would line up their best offer for Marleau even at his age. Good speed, size and a proven goal scorer and he's a center who's good in the faceoff circle. Isn't he top 3 or 4 in goal scoring over the last 5 years? Yeah GM's consider him elite, no question. Depending on the team many will value marleau over Thornton.
