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.
