from Dan Rosen of NHL.com,
"I want to play in San Jose," Marleau said Monday at Media Day for the NHL Awards, where he is up for the Lady Byng Trophy. "I want to win there."
Marleau said he and San Jose captain Joe Thornton, the Sharks' longest tenured players, have already discussed next season and getting back to the Stanley Cup Playoffs to make amends for the team's collapse against the Los Angeles Kings. San Jose blew a 3-0 lead and lost to the Kings in seven games in the Western Conference First Round.
"We're looking forward to next year," Marleau said of him and Thornton. "It's going to [stink] having to go through all the 82 games to get back in the playoffs to get to that point to actually do something about it."...
Marleau and Thornton, though, are in control of their futures in San Jose with full no-trade clauses and three-year contracts that kick in this season. But Wilson's talk of a rebuild can be taken as a clear sign that he's telling them they should waive those no-trade clauses if asked.
Marleau said the topic has not been discussed yet with management and he hasn't thought about it. He doesn't seem to have any interest in doing so either.
