Great contract. Likely his last shot / season at a cup?

Last season in the NHL and with the Sharks, more like it, but they're no longer contenders, IMO, so the cup is not a factor, really.

He's really not that bad, despite his age. This is a steal imo.

If they had/get goaltending they could contend IMO.

Could see him improving on his numbers from last year tbh, it wouldn't surprise me at all. He's still got the necessary speed and the skill is still there. 

 

Glad both sides could make this work, he's one guy I'd like to see retire a Shark. It's a shame he had to make that pit stop in Toronto, Marleau is the definitive Shark.

Easily.  I have them in second..  Pacific IMO:

1. Vegas - only surefire playoff team

2. San Jose - defense still elite, enough offense to make it in.

3. Vancouver - youth carries the team, but the offseason additions propel us

4. Anaheim - lots of young talent and one of the few decent goalies in the division

5. Arizona - Not deep enough, but improving.  Weak defense.

6. Calgary -  AHL quality goaltending and natural regression from career years.  Colorado exposed them for the frauds they are.

7. LA - rebuilding, but still enough decent players to not embarrass themselves here

8. Edmonton - Should have been relegated to the AHL years ago.  Nowhere close to being an NHL team and would struggle to not finish last in the appropriate league.

I might hate the Sharts, but Marleau and Joe are / were great players. They've earned their spots on the iceberg that leaves San Jose in April.
