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.
Bringing Thorton, Marleau and Boyle back is just an attempt to make SJ look like Calgary.

If you can't win with those players in their prime, you can't win with them as they regress.
