The San Jose Sharks just signed Marleau to a 2 year, $12.6 million contract extension. At only 78 points last year, is he worth this mega deal? Why?

Calling Marleau a 2nd line centre is like saying that Orr could skate just a little. The only reason he is a 2nd line centre is because the best centre in the league is on his team. On 90% of the other teams in the league, he is their #1. The only other teams I can think of that he's not #1 is Calgary, Tampa Bay, Pittsburg, and Colorado. The guy is top 30 in the league in goals, points, PP Goals, Game Winning Goals, and shooting %.

Plus, his extension doesn't kick in until after this season, so he's getting $4.5 million this season which is a steal in my books! Considering there are only 34 guys in the league making $6 million or more, I say he's in the class of one of the top 30 players in the league, so why shouldn't be be paid as such.

Good move San Jose!

You're right, none of them are worth $6+ million. But if we're playing the comparative game, then putting Marleau in the same salary class as those guys is fair.

Great to have you back Babs!

And I agree with what you say. Marleau is a good ol' farm kid and works really hard. He is the Captain of the team and is a really good two way player. I think this year is his time to shine now.

No Sacrifice , No Victory!

YAY, BACK TO MY FAVOURITE FORUM!!!!!!

Marleau is so much more than just a 78-point guy. He is the face of the Sharks, the most recognizable hockey figure in SJ, the most prolific playoff scorer over the last three years (with Iginla), a clutch performer, a leader and the best #2 center in the league. If Vanek, Drury and Gomez even remotely deserve what they got then so does Marleau.
