Summary

He has played 1,715 NHL games, the most in League history without winning the Cup.Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford said Marleau's chase made acquiring him more enticing."His desire to get that ultimate prize is going to be big for him," Rutherford said. Marleau, Sheary and Rodrigues are expected to aid a group that had become overly reliant on its top three lines, leading to increased minutes for Crosby and second-line center Evgeni Malkin."Trying to get their minutes down so that we could come, and come hard, shift after shift with four lines, that's what we should be able to do now that we made those changes," Rutherford said.The Penguins (37-18-6) have lost three straight games and are two points behind the first-place Washington Capitals in the Metropolitan Division. Even there were times he played with [Jack] Eichel, so those guys can definitely move around."Marleau had 20 points (10 goals, 10 assists) in 58 games for the Sharks this season, his 22nd in the NHL."You always treat iconic players with the class they deserve," San Jose general manager Doug Wilson said of Marleau. He didn't leave here because we didn't like him."Losing the past three games did not lead to bringing back Sheary and trading for Rodrigues, who had nine points (five goals, four assists) in 38 games for the Sabres this season.
