There have been trade rumors following Marleau this season but he has a no-movement clause in his contract so he will have to be satisfied if he goes.

Patrick Marleau largely dodged questions about a recent report that he would accept a trade to the New York Rangers, Los Angeles, or Anaheim.

I’ve been here forever and it’s been a great place to play. I’m not going to get into specifics or anything like that. There’s always been rumors in my career. I don’t really want to feed into it anymore or comment on it. I don’t want it to become a distraction or anything." That's Marleau answering a question about whether or not he wants to stay in San Jose. When asked specifically if he can confirm or deny the report about his willingness to play for those three teams he repeated his statement that he'd rather not feed into it. Of course, him not explicitly denying the report will only fuel the speculation about a possible trade. That being said, we doubt anything is imminent, if for no other reason than we're still months away from the trade deadline, so all potential teams involved will likely want to take some of that time to get a better sense for how the season is playing out.

Reports say Patrick Marleau would accept a trade to the New York Rangers, Anaheim Ducks or LA Kings.

This report comes after the Elliotte Friedman from Hockey Night in Canada stated that his name was getting thrown around in trade options. Marleau has a no-trade clause and is in the second year of a three-year 20 million dollar contract. He is 36 years of age but would still make a nice addition to a team making a push at the playoffs. Would the Sharks really trade him to a division rival though? It seems unlikely.

Oct 11 - 1:25 AM

It's being suggested by some that Patrick Marleau's struggles last season were related to a poor effort level.

Former Sharks analyst Drew Remenda believes Marleau "pouted" at the start of the year after an awkward off-season that brought plenty of criticism. Others think the veteran winger, who will shortly turn 36 years of age, is beginning his decline. He was still getting plenty of ice time despite his struggles last season, but new coach Peter DeBoer probably won't give Marleau the same treatment. The effort and the production will have to be there. Marleau could be a good value pick in the later rounds of your drafts.
