While I support your support of my post, I don't think your statement is doing the players justice.
When Marleau is getting criticized, I feel it is mostly because he is getting held to standards that are unfair to him. There are stretches where he disappoints, and he has had a season or two of terrible play, but overall, he's doing all his best.
When Thornton gets criticized, I feel it is mostly because he isn't living up to his potential. The standards are simply much higher for him. One can always point to his and Marleau's salaries and say that they should be treated equally, but we all know that Thornton is the superior player.
