There is less of a chance of Marleau not signing in SJ than there is Thornton. Thornton will sign first (simply because his agent is so easy to work with and Marleau's just passed away) and then Marleau will sign an almost identical contract to his but a couple 100K less per year. Marleau will never play anywhere else. And Boyle wants to retire here. The only one of the big 4 UFAs I was worried about leaving was Pavelski, but now that he's locked up DW can do whatever he wants.
