Yes you are the only one. A lot of people bash Marleau because of his quiet demeanor and not showing any emotion. Not because he doesnt fight.

Say whatever you want about "heart". (Though the fact that he consistently shows up to camp in the best physical condition of the team states that his cardiovascular health is fine) Marleau consistently pots 30 goals a year. In his last seven seasons, he has only failed to miss that mark once. In 14 seasons, he has scored 20+ in eleven of them. The guy can score, consistently. Please let that sink in.
He doesnt produce enough to justify his Cap hit imo. The one season which he didnt score 30 is 2007-2008, when he pretty much sulked the entire year which probably didnt sit well with a lot of fans. That and his numerous playoff disappearances of course.
