Marleau for Purcell and a 3rd. Do it Dean
You don't give up prospects like that for Marleau. If they're going to trade him, its because they are in cap jail and need to dump his salary.
Its for picks, or a player like Dreweiske.
I still think they could Waive him outright.
I'm glad that DL didn't b.s. us fans by telling us one thing that he is not part of this sharks and ottawa Heatley senerio, by then suprising us a couple days or so later that he was. So right on DL!!! You did the right thing by not b.s. us fans and by sticking to what you preach.
I'm also not looking foward to seeing Heatley in a Sharks uniform with him lined up against Thornton. Sure, Heatley will for sure get about 50-60 goals and about 8-12 goals against the Kings, possibly.
But lets not regret that DL did not end up getting Heatley because he is a bad toxin in the locker room who always seems to not get along later on with a coach and etc.. for reason being he wants to be traded. So I still say screw Heatley!!!
Now I just wanna FINALLY HEAR from Dany Heatley's own mouth for the reason being he wanted to be traded- since Heatley himself said "I will not explain why I actually want to be traded until I am traded to that other team." So now that he has a new team, I wanna hear from him of what excuse he has for reason being he wanted to be traded soo bad.
Perhaps the only way they could get him to waive the NTC is if they tell him "look, we're going to waive you if you don't agree to a trade, at least this way you can have control over where you go." Much like the way they were able to get Boyle out of TB last year. That's the only way it appears that Marleau is going to let them trade him.
They're in a bad spot though, having to waive Marleau for nothing would be bad asset management for sure.
I wouldn't give up Moller for Marleau but I would give up Purcell in a second. I feel like Purcell's days are running out with this team yet he still looks attractive enough to another team to possibly take the bait.
