Center Stuff, Marleau Stuff Update

Actually, it sounds like Doug Wilson IS a little unsure about Patrick Marleau's future with the Sharks. The Sharks beat writer, David Pollak, has written that Wilson has been talking to several teams about both Campbell and Marleau. I wouldn't be surprised if San Jose doesn't have the money to match the offers Campbell is going to get come July 1st; to get that money, they'd have to give up Patrick Marleau. Hmmmmm.

Meanwhile in San Jose, the Sharks have managed to re-sign the likes of Jeremy Roenick (praise his name), Joe Pavelski, and Nabby back-up Brian Boucher. Pavelski is a great asset; he's going to be a quality forward for years, and he's only going to get better. I can't wait to see him on Team USA at the 2010 Olympics. Boucher likewise (a good asset, not the Team USA thing). And JR...well, it goes without saying that it's a beautiful thing the Sharks have held on to him.

Ryan Clowe is a restricted free agent this year; I doubt he'll leave San Jose, but if for some reason we wanted to be extravagant and sell off some future draft picks for Clowe I actually think it might be worth it. Just my two cents, and so on and so forth.

The Marleau-Campbell business is very, very intriguing though. It looks like at least one of them will leave San Jose.

I know he is old and we probably won't go after him, but isn't Dougie Weight a UFA?

For the right price he could feed the puck to Mr. Czar.
