    or 20 or 18 or whatever the guy played like two decades of his life on the sharks so good on them giving a league minimum contract after he ditched them for the leafs.

    may have caved cuz of their record

    For the sake of Marleau being a human being I hope he helps San Jose.

    If I were a fantasy hockey type I wouldn't put my money on him.

    I was thinking more of like a nice gesture and charity. This is a retire as a Shark, we forgive you for ditching us contract. I don’t think anyone expects anything from Marleau at this point.

    I can't decide if the Marleau signing is an attempt by Wilson to bring in something positive to distract from what looks like may be a long and disappointing season or is it an indictment of the talent that SJ has in their system?

    except Deboer has him up on the first line with Meier and Couture in his first practice. Deboer might be one of the worst, most stubborn coaches in the league.

    Pretty on point analysis. Marleau can at least be an effective checker but his head for thegame clearly isn't what it once was. Thornton can't skate and he can't think the game anymore.

    I'm happy for him, he deserves to retire as a Shark.

    Marleau is just 110 regular season games away from Mr. Hockey. Guess that's his goal right now?

    He would have already passed him if he didn't play in a time with two lockouts.

    he can still skate decently well at his age, but thats about it, he can be a warm body in the area of the play every shift, but dont expect more than that

    pretty bogus move by the sharks. Before they didn’t need him and had no interest in him, now they do? It’s Wilsons infamous charity cases. He has a lot of them: Gomez, Lemieux, Roenick, Nichol, Wallin, Scott. The differences are obvious with Marleau, but I don’t see how signing him now will do any good other than giving him a nice exit from the sport with his home team and city.

    He isn’t a very effective player at this point offensively and defensively. Maybe he can contribute, but I highly doubt it. Just seems like something for fans to get behind to boost moral rather than focus on how crappy the sharks have been and ways to fix it. This just doesn’t appear to be one of them.

    Happy ending for Patty.

    He did the Leafs a solid by waiving his NMC when the time came.

    I'm glad it's all turned out well for him and his family.
