doug wilson: "hey patty, for $7mm/per, do you think you can wait till june for vacation?
patrick marleau: "why?"
i'm a marleau loyalist, but watching him skate when he's slumping is PAINFUL. i think clownfish dig deeper than marleau sometimes. -13 after 27 games is terribad.
if he's hit the wall physically, then scratch him till he's ready to play NHL hockey again. if he goes a few games without scoring, whatever. but for love of teal, just hit someone if that's all you can contribute that night.
