Patrick Marleau led the Sharks to a 3-0 win with two points Saturday against the Jets.
Marleau now has goal-assist performances in two straight games. The 35-year-old has not seen his offensive game dry up yet, so it wouldn’t be fair to expect it to this season, either. He’s coming off a season in which he scored 33 and had 70 points. Marc-Edouard Vlasic and Tomas Hertl scored the other goals. Oct 12 - 1:56 AM

Patrick Marleau had a goal and an assist in San Jose's 4-0 victory over Los Angeles.

Not a bad way for Marleau to open the season. At the same time, we're not thrilled about the fact that he was limited to just 14:38 minutes of ice time. That's something worth keeping an eye on because there's a concern that the Sharks' emphasis on their younger players will cost veterans like Marleau.
Oct 9 - 9:09 AM

Patrick Marleau will start the season on the wing with Logan Couture at center and Matt Nieto on the right side.

This has the makings of an excellent line and will likely see the opponents top line as well so their plus/minus could take a hit. Marleau had 33 goals and 70 points last season and at the age of 35 you have to wonder if he is going to slow down but every indication thus far is that he is not. He should be taken in the mid-rounds of most pools.

Patrick Marleau scored a goal and added an assist in Tuesday's 4-2 preseason split squad loss to the Canucks.

It was a vintage Patrick Marleau goal as he turned on the jets after forcing a turnover in the neutral zone to come in on a breakaway and snap a shot by a helpless Joe Cannata in net for the Canucks. There were lot of question marks surrounding the Sharks leadership group after the massive collapse in the playoffs last spring and Marleau was in the center of it all. It will be interesting to see what role Marleau plays in it all this season with Joe Thornton no longer the captain.

Sharks veteran Patrick Marleau admits the feeling in training camp is unlike any other that he can remember.

It was a summer of upheaval in San Jose as management made a concerted effort to disrupt what had been a feeling of complacency among the team's veterans. "It definitely has a different feel to it," Marleau said. "I think there's a lot of unanswered questions. We don't know what's going to take place here, what's going to happen here. Before, it seemed like everything was pretty much set." While his teammate Joe Thornton is the player most talked about during the offseason, it will be interesting to see how the 35-year-old Marleau responds to a new challenge.
Sep 16 - 8:13 PM

Patrick Marleau has scored 199 goals over his last six seasons.

That is fourth best in the NHL as only Steve Stamkos, Alex Ovechkin and Corey Perry have found the back of the net more often than the veteran Shark. Marleau has the age factor working against him as he will turn 35 in eight days but another 30-plus goal season is still within his grasp. Draft Marleau in the middle rounds of multiple category pools as he will pick up points, especially on the power play but his lack of peripheral stats hurts his value.
Sep 7 - 7:31 AM

Patrick Marleau doesn't think he'll be traded by the San Jose Sharks.

"I want to play in San Jose. I want to win there," Marleau said. He has a no-movement clause, so it's ultimately his decision. The same is true for Joe Thornton, who also doesn't seem inclined to accept a trade.
Jun 23 - 3:45 PM

Jeremy Roenick thinks the San Jose Sharks should try to trade Patrick Marleau during the off-season.

"If it were me, like I said, I think Joe Thornton is the captain, and he should stay in place, but they should see what they can get for Patrick Marleau, who has been there his whole career, and maybe he needs a change of scenery and you can get a lot for him," said Roenick. "He's an extremely talented player and you can get a lot on the market for a guy like him, and maybe change the chemistry on the team." Marleau led the Sharks with seven points in seven games in the team's Round 1 playoff loss to Los Angeles, but he was held off the scoresheet in the last three contests of the series. He also finished third on the Sharks with 70 points and second on the club with 33 goals in 82 games during the regular season. Roenick has been critical of Marleau in the past, but he wasn't placing the blame solely on him or Thornton like others have done. The Sharks have talked openly about shaking up their leadership group and dealing Marleau would fit that objective.

Patrick Marleau found it hard to argue against the San Jose Sharks' long-time label as playoff chokers on Wednesday.

"You don't usually agree with it, but then you do something like this, and it's not easy to take," Marleau said. After years of failing to live up to expectations in the postseason, the Sharks jumped to a 3-0 lead against the Kings, only to become the fourth team in NHL history to lose Games 4-7. San Jose has to find a way to address this troubling trend of playoff shortfalls, but it will be hard to do with most of their core, including Marleau, already locked up.

Marleau has been excellent in the playoffs with five points in three games. Matt Nieto, Brent Burns and Tomas Hertl also scored for the Sharks.

The Lady Byng Trophy goes to the player who has a great season while also exemplifying sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct.
