More NHL trade rumors for the San Jose Sharks regarding Patrick Marleau.

When asked if he would consider waiving his no-trade/movement clause if the Sharks wanted to broker a deal, the 32-year-old forward offered up what seems to be a vague way of possibly saying yes. He was not as direct as Roberto Luogno, but he did not say no, it appears he is keeping is options open.

“We’ll cross that bridge if it ever comes up,” Marleau told David Pollak of the San Jose Mercury News.

Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News recently argued that, even if they can’t get fair value back, the San Jose Sharks have little choice but to trade Patrick Marleau when possible.
