Marleau makes nearly 7 million, and Couture just extended for 6 million. Don't you think players of that paygrade should be effective playing with anyone? They shouldn't have to "need" someone to be effective.

I understand that they may be more effective in certain situations and with certain linemates. But they should be plenty effective otherwise, especially if they have each other. At the very least, they need to be able to produce without linemates who coast upwards of 5 million/year.
