I havent seen this mentioned but he has a full no-trade clause. That means that despite the salary structure, it may be undumpable... although the salary has to be like that for a reason ...

If the wink-wink, nudge-nudge of the deal is he plays two years and then retires then I don't see the NTC as a big problem.

If he retires after two, won't his 6.25M still go against the cap?

Hw won't retire, he'll go to a special island for a year before retiring or he'll be traded.

Oh ok.  I thought that if you sign a player over35, you're on the hook for the whole contract.  I guess they could trade him

Oooooooohoohooooooho! I approve! Use that cap space, shouldn't impact the kids resigning. Makes it more difficult signing Doughty next summer...

Sure but just like Pronger or Datsyuk you can trade the deal and if Marleau is effectively retired he won't care what team isn't paying him.

Playing with Matthews and Nylander is probably a pretty compelling reason to sign. Could get 200 points out of that trio.

hahaha this is awesome! Like Lou says, this is the only time we could pull a move like this and not have it hinder the big picture in any way shape or form. Dude's gettin' paid, who cares... Marleau is that solid vet with something left to give for the next phase. Great signing! Welcome to Terranna Patrick!

Doesn't really seem like Lamoriello addressed the question at all. The question wasn't about whether or not it fit in with the cap or how they build the team it was about Marleau's age and the term of the deal.

I like this move. I'm excited. It fits. And it says Toronto is a destination for players with ambition again.

Not sure about this signing as I don't know how good Marleau is anymore. Hope he's rejuvenated playing with the kids

Oh my...
Like, how do you handle it? Three lines that can hurt you and a high-energy fourth line. And Auston gets a left-winger that can finish!

Well, for starters, those won't be the lines. Or, if they are, someone is going to have to explain the thought process in losing Leipsic by protecting Martin and then not have Martin playing.

27 goals last year, he can still skate very well. I lived in San Jose for 5 years and follow the team fairly closely, still have a lot of Sharks fan friends and they love him.
