    As a loyal Shark’s fan I get booed a lot on the Sharks message boards for this: but I seriously think they need to Marleau and a straight exchange of Marleau for Phaneauf makes a lot of sense for both teams.

    It makes sense for the Sharks, not much for the Leafs. Leafs have a problem defensively and getting rid of the guy who eats the most minutes for a forward and that is it is not the best option.

    Plus it’s not very often you see a superstar for superstar trade, it’s usually prize for package. Both teams would probably rather maximize their return by getting prospect, pick, and nhl ready player

    That’s not to mention Marleau is 34 and is on the downside of his career. Phaneuf is 5 years younger and still in his prime. That would be a robbery for the Sharks to be honest
