Patrick Marleau would reportedly accept a trade to these three teams …

Remember those murmurs from Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman about Patrick Marleau possibly being on the trade market?

It’s all still very much off-the-record, but CSNCalifornia.com’s Kevin Kurz reports that Patrick Marleau would accept a trade to three teams: the Anaheim Ducks, Los Angeles Kings and New York Rangers.

(Everyone wants to play at MSG, right?)

On one hand, San Jose Sharks fans would probably have a conniption if Marleau relocated to one of the other California teams.

On the other, it certainly makes sense, as the life-long Shark probably would prefer not to uproot his family.

Interestingly, it’s possible that Marleau may have asked for a trade.

PHT’s own Jason Brough and Mike Halford discussed why it might make sense for San Jose to move their former captain in the video above.

Quick thought: the Ducks may prove to be the most suitable partner of the three, as they boast bountiful cap space compared to the Kings or Rangers.
