If Marleau is still scoring 20-25 goals past 35 and he's paid appropriately, you'll be happy with it especially with the accolades that will come with that if he stays a Shark. He only needs to average 23 goals over the next five seasons to hit 500. And if he miraculously finds a way to stay as durable and play another 8 seasons, he'll be the all-time games played leader.

If Marleau is still playing at 43 and is as important to the Sharks and Recchi was to the Bruins I think that would only support my posisiton
The Bruins won a cup, so that's cool.

Who are some retired players who's careers were comparable to Thornton?

Alfredson like I mentioned or Joe Sacik maybe... probably not now that I think about it Sacik was too heavy on the goal side of things

Oates might be the closest.

Yeah I was about to say that... Thornton's career was probably something between Alfredson and Oates...

Oates was a little too weak on the goal side of things and Alfredson may have been a little too heavy

Oates is more comparable because of play styles. Alfredsson wasn't nearly the puck hog that Oates and Thornton were and those two were dedicated setup guys whereas Alfreddson was a lot more balanced as a goal scorer and a setup guy.
