God no, Marleau's a joke in games that matter.

LOL, that's why he was the only Shark to show up last year against Vancouver, and was one of the reasons they beat Detroit, right?

Marleau has more playoff goals than:

Oveckin, Crosby, Malkin
Briere (not for long)
Alfredsson, Elias, Selanne.
Nearly 50% better than Hossa in 1 less game (36 to 52).


He is tied with Federov, in 60 less games. 1 behind Roenick. 4 behind Neely. 5 behind Robitaille and Modano. 7 behind Mikita. Has a higher GPG than Yzerman, Trottier, Howe.

Marleau is wildly inconsistent, but overall offensive threat in the playoffs. You need to be able to win without him, as there will be games or even series where he is neutralized, but he is also capable of winning series on his own. Aside from Briere, Crosby, Ovechkin, Malkin, there aren't many forwards who consistently dominate in the playoffs.

Sounds a hell of a lot like Krejci, except older and more expensive.

good point, but like you said not for krejci
Krejci should be able to net you a young player
