Maple Leafs' Patrick Marleau: No set linemates established yet

Marleau's linemates have not been predetermined by coach Mike Babcock, reports the Toronto Sun.

Babcock was asked about Marleau's linemates at Thursday's state of the union conversation with the Toronto media. "He's a good player, a good man, he can play with anyone," said Babs. "When we talked, I said, 'I don't have a clue who you are playing with, whether it's with (Nazem Kadri), (Auston Matthews) or (Tyler Bozak). They're all good. We'll figure that out over time.'" Marleau can skate well enough to play with Matthews and would be a nice two-way complement to Kadri. Either way, he's going to get opportunities to produce offense and a guaranteed role on the power play -- a win-win for fantasy owners seeking depth.
