Patrick Marleau's former teammate Logan Couture gave Leafs coach Mike Babcock partial credit for Marleau's decision to sign with Toronto.

"I think that’s one of the reasons why Patty decided to go there," Couture said. "He knows what type of coach (Babcock) is. He knows (Babcock) gets the best out of his teams. And that’s the main thing that Babs does — he gets the best out of players who play for him." Marleau has experience working under Babcock as a member of Team Canada's gold medal-winning Olympic teams in 2010 and 2014. Sharks coach Pete DeBoer agreed that past history between Babcock and Marleau is part of what convinced the player to join the Maple Leafs. Toronto already has a great core of young forwards and the hope is that Marleau act as a leader as the squad looks to build on its 2017 playoff berth.

Patrick Marleau didn't make the decision to sign with the Maple Leafs lightly.

Marleau signed a three-year, $18.75 million contract with Toronto Sunday night. "I think I’ve worn out a few carpets pacing around the house trying to make this decision over the last couple days," said Marleau. "But, I’m extremely excited and happy to be a part of the Maple Leafs organization. It’s definitely an honor to be able to call myself a Maple Leaf, obviously being a Canadian-born player. This decision took me quite awhile to come to, but I’ve made it, and I’m happy with it. I can’t wait to get started." Marleau is joining a promising team coming off a season where the squad made the playoffs on the backs of superb rookie performances. Even still, Marleau is leaving behind a Sharks franchise that drafted him in 1997. He played 1,493 games with San Jose.

Patrick Marleau has inked a three-year deal worth $18.75 million with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Marleau had played all 1,493 of his career games with the San Jose Sharks, where he amassed 1,082 points. He notched 27 goals and 46 points in 82 games last season. It's certainly a pricey contract for a player who will be 38 years of age in September, but Marleau could fit nicely on one of the Leafs' top-two lines in 2017-18.
Jul 2 - 6:07 PM

Joe Thornton is reportedly trying to recruit Patrick Marleau back to San Jose.

Marleau has been weighing his options, but Thornton has reportedly agreed to re-sign with the Sharks on a one-year deal. Having Thornton back likely bolsters the Sharks' chances of retaining Marleau too, but he might be getting longer-term offers elsewhere. Toronto, Anaheim, the New York Rangers, Carolina, Nashville, and Los Angeles have all been cited as possible destinations for Marleau.

The San Jose Sharks have reportedly made Patrick Marleau a two-year offer.

Marleau can become an unrestricted free agent on Saturday. He has expressed an interest in re-signing with the Sharks, but he's also reportedly attracted interest from a number of other teams, including Toronto, Anaheim, the New York Rangers, Carolina, Nashville, and Los Angeles. He had 27 goals and 46 points in 82 contests last season.

Patrick Marleau would like to re-sign with the San Jose Sharks.

"Yeah, it would be nice. We’ll see if that’s an option," Marleau said. "A lot of time here before this decision needs to be made." He's scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. He's spent his entire 1,493-game career with San Jose, but there's a good chance that the Sharks will be looking elsewhere this summer. Among other things, they will be looking to re-sign Martin Jones and Marc-Edouard Vlasic, who each have one season left on their contracts, but will probably require big raises that start in 2018-19.

Patrick Marleau could play the 2017-18 season with another NHL team.

The soon to be UFA may have played his last game with the Sharks. The Sharks were looking to deal him at times during his tenure with San Jose and now that he has an expiring contract, he should play elsewhere unless the Sharks have a change of heart.
Apr 24 - 10:34 AM

If a 3-1 Game 6 loss to the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday was Patrick Marleau's last game with the San Jose Sharks, then he at least made a good final impression.

While Marleau will rue a missed opportunity on a breakaway during the second period, he supplied San Jose with some hope via a late goal in the third period. He ended up scoring three goals in the series and he added an assist. It will be interesting to see what his plans are for the future and if he is in San Jose's design moving forward.
Apr 23 - 1:53 AM
