Patrick Marleau: Pursuing other options
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marleau will not be back with San Jose, according to agent Pat Brisson, and is looking for alternative options, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

After securing his release from Toronto, via a trade and buyout courtesy of Carolina, it seemed the table was set for Marleau to make a return to the Sharks. It appears, however, that the two sides haven't been able to make it work and the 39-year-old will be looking for a new home. Over the course of his 21-year NHL career, the center has racked up 551 goals and 615 assists in 1,657 games, adding another 127 points in 191 playoffs appearances. Marleau will no doubt be eager to land with a club in the playoff hunt, but probably needs to be willing to accept a significantly reduced paycheck.

Patrick Marleau: Skating in San Jose
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marleau joined Joe Thornton at the Sharks' practice facility Monday, reports.

After being traded to Carolina from Toronto and having his contract bought out by the Hurricanes, it has long been assumed that Marleau would make his way back to the Sharks' organization. While not exactly a contractual agreement, the fact that the veteran is taking part in offseason workouts in San Jose is a good indication a deal is in the works.

Patrick Marleau: Will be bought out by Carolina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Hurricanes will buy out the final two years of Marleau's contract, Luke DeCock of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.

Marleau made it clear that he was really only interested in playing in California in 2019-20 before he was traded to Carolina, so the Hurricanes essentially agreed to take on his cap hit in order to pick up a 2020 first-round pick from the Maple Leafs. Now that he's an unrestricted free agent, it seems like a foregone conclusion that Marleau will reunite with the Sharks on a short-term, team-friendly deal.

Hurricanes' Patrick Marleau: Dished to Carolina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marleau has been traded to Carolina along with a conditional 2020 first-round pick and a 2020 seventh-round pick for a 2020 sixth-round pick, Lance Hornby of The Toronto Sun reports.

It appears the purpose of this trade for the Maple Leafs is just to dump some salary, while the Hurricanes may buy out Marleau if he doesn't want to play for them. It's believed that Marleau, who has played all but the last two seasons with the Sharks, is hoping to make a return to San Jose. If the buyout occurs, Marleau would likely be looking at a fairly cheap, short-term contract at his next landing spot.

Maple Leafs' Patrick Marleau: More trade speculation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marleau has put his Toronto home on the market, further fuelling speculation that he has asked for a trade, reports Toronto Star.

Marleau signed a three-year deal with the Maple Leafs in 2017 and has a full no-movement clause. If he waives it, the Leafs would free up $6.25 million in cap space. The Leafs have spoken to the Kings and Coyotes, however it is thought he'd like to be back home with the Sharks. Marleau spent his entire career there until he signed with the Leafs. His underlying metrics have dropped dramatically over the last season, so he's a bit of a liability in today's world of advanced stats. But paired with a younger player, Marleau could be moved.

Maple Leafs' Patrick Marleau: Wants trade to Western US team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Leafs and Kings have discussed a trade that would send Marleau west for 2019-20, reports

The two sides are not close. Marleau's family has moved back to the West coast, so he's prioritizing places like Los Angeles, San Jose and even Arizona and Colorado as potential landing spots. The Leafs may need to sweeten the pot with a young player in order to have any team take on a declining $6.25-million player who will be 40 in September. But it would help solve the Leafs' cap issues.

Maple Leafs' Patrick Marleau: Back in point column
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marleau dished out an even-strength assist while averaging 17:06 of ice time in Sunday's 4-2 loss to Boston.

After going pointless in the last four games, Marleau got back in the point column with an assist on Morgan Rielly's first-period goal. Although the 39-year-old has just two points in the series, he saw 3:07 of power-play time in the game, which will only add to his fantasy value if that sticks. Ahead of Tuesday's Game 7, the veteran has been solid in the win-or-go-home scenario, racking up five points in seven career appearances.

Maple Leafs' Patrick Marleau: Factors into Game 1 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marleau earned an assist Thursday in Toronto's 4-1 win over the Bruins in Game 1 of the best-of-seven series.

The veteran provided the secondary assist on William Nylander's first goal of the postseason, a goal that gave the visitors a two-goal lead heading into the final 20 minutes. John Tavares would add an empty-netter in the late stages to make it a 4-1 final. Thursday's helper gives Marleau -- at 39 years of age -- 126 points in 185 career playoff games.

Maple Leafs' Patrick Marleau: Even-strength play falls off cliff
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marleau has one goal, two assists and a minus-2 rating in his last nine games.

Overall, his 36 points (72 games) put him at risk of barely hitting 40 points this season. Marleau's game has clearly dropped off dramatically this season and he is struggling to move the puck up the ice in possession. His problems at 5-on-5 started last season, but were masked by the glitter of those 27 goals. This year, the Leafs are getting outshot, outchanced and outscored when Marleau is on the ice. Put simply, he's dragging down the scorers he plays with. At 39 with another year at $6 million AAV, he's a huge anchor on the Leafs' salary cap.

Maple Leafs' Patrick Marleau: Tallies goal, assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marleau garnered a goal and a helper against the Oilers on Wednesday.

Marleau has three multipoint games in his previous seven outings and appears to be rediscovering his scoring touch at the right time. The veteran winger needs just seven more points to earn his sixth straight 40-point campaign.

Maple Leafs' Patrick Marleau: Game may be warming up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marleau set up two goals in Saturday's 6-3 victory over the Canadiens.

Marleau's scoring has declined slightly this year, but the guy is 39 in a young man's game. He has heated up recently with five points, including four helpers, in his last six games. It's hard to recommend Marleau, but this warming trend may make him relevant to owners in deep leagues. And especially those in leagues with unlimited transactions, where you can troll the wire for the week's hottest hands.

Maple Leafs' Patrick Marleau: Makes return to goal column
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marleau netted his 13th goal of the season in a 6-3 win over the Golden Knights on Thursday.

Marleau had been held without a goal for six straight contests entering the game. He added three shots on goal. Marleau is up to 28 points in 57 games, giving him a chance to reach 40 for the year. The veteran forward has adapted well to his mentor role in Toronto, and he can still chip in offensively alongside his younger teammates.

Maple Leafs' Patrick Marleau: Musters two points in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marleau chipped in a goal and an assist Friday, but it wasn't enough as the Maple Leafs lost to the Red Wings 3-2 in overtime.

Marleau was the lone assist man on Auston Matthews' first-period equalizer, and the esteemed veteran would send the game to overtime with 2:19 remaining in regulation. While his numbers don't jump off the page -- 12 goals and 12 assists over 50 games -- Marleau remains a budget-friendly DFS option in most contests. His track record consisting of 1,153 points (547 goals, 606 assists) over 21 years of service time (primarily with the Sharks) speaks for itself.

Maple Leafs' Patrick Marleau: Two points in win over Bolts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marleau scored a goal and added an assist in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Lightning.

Marleau got his night started with a secondary assist before adding a goal of his own in the second period. The two points ended his nine-game pointless skid and tied him for 24th on the all-time goals list with 257. The 39-year-old now has 11 goals and 22 points in 46 games this season. While he's still performing at a consistent level for Toronto, Marleau's average of 0.48 points per game is his lowest mark since his rookie campaign with the Sharks back in 1997-98.

Maple Leafs' Patrick Marleau: Providing consistent production
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marleau is projected to finish this season with 44 points.

Through 37 games, the 39-year-old Marleau has 10 goals and 10 assists. With so many offensive weapons to choose from, Toronto hasn't needed to rely on the veteran as much as in past seasons. If he continues on his current pace, Marleau would wind up with 22 goals and 22 assists, marking his lowest point total since the 2012-13 season. That year, as a member of the Sharks, Marleau appeared in just 48 games and still managed 31 points. He's definitely lost a step but continues to benefit from a star-studded supporting cast.

Maple Leafs' Patrick Marleau: Among elite company in NHL history
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marleau scored the game-winning goal Wednesday in a 5-3 victory over San Jose.

And with that snipe, Marleau became the 25th player in league history to score against each of the 31 NHL teams. In this case, it came against his former squad. Marleau one-timed a pass from Andreas Johnsson from the bottom of the right face-off circle. After a slow start to the season, Patty has nine points (four goals, five assists) in 13 games in November.

Maple Leafs' Patrick Marleau: Continues producing at age 39
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marleau is on pace to match his point total from a season ago.

The 39-year-old veteran has seven helpers in his last 10 games and is scoring at the same rate as last year (0.57 points per game), putting him on pace to match his 2017-18 mark of 47 points. It's worth noting that Marleau is shooting less this season, averaging 2.05 shots per game, which is his lowest per-game shot output since 2001-02.

Maple Leafs' Patrick Marleau: Nets team's only goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marleau scored the Leafs' only goal in a 2-1 loss to Dallas on Thursday night.

Marleau has not been getting goals this season -- he's been playing with shoot-first Auston Matthews, so it's not really a surprise. He may be 39, but he can still skate with the speedy young Leafs. Marleau was moved onto the team's first power-play unit Thursday and was parked in front of the net. It might be just what he needs to get on a roll.

Maple Leafs' Patrick Marleau: Lackluster in offensive zone
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marleau is mired in a five-game pointless streak.

The Maple Leafs will need the veteran Marleau to start playing assertively since third-year stud Auston Matthews (shoulder) -- with whom he's occasionally played with at even strength -- will miss at least four weeks of action. Marleau has only registered 23 shots on goal through 12 games, which at least partially tells the story of why he's only scored once over that span. However, the silver lining is that the 39-year-old has averaged about 19 and a half minutes of ice time over the last two contests. As long as he continues to see playing time at or near season-high levels, Marleau should start to bust out of his slump.

Maple Leafs' Patrick Marleau: Two helpers in OT win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marleau posted two assists in Sunday's 7-6 overtime win versus Chicago.

Both happened to be primary helpers, with one coming on the game-winning marker in overtime. The 39-year-old veteran has yet to score this season but does have four assists in three games. Playing a top-six role in potentially the league's most dynamic offense, Marleau could wind up doing wonders for fantasy owners in 2018-19.
