    Congratulations, Patrick Marleau!

    A salute to one of the NHL's classiest players, and well deserving of an amazing accomplishment!

    He's decrepit, but it's awesome to see.

    He definitely hung on a bit too long, but it's still great to see.

    If you're 6'2 220 lbs, and never go in to a corner once, you too, could play forever and win nothing.

    He really hasn't though. This is the first year he's been below replacement level.

    He also lost something like 120 games in his career to fucking lockouts, which makes this even more insane.

    It didn't help, no. I kind of thought he was pretty much finished a couple of years ago at least, 'replacement level' and analytics aside. Having said, he wasn't really awful, just washed is all.

    Congratulation and now job by Vegas. I was never a big Marleau fan.

    Yup. They'd have been doubling down on that window that closed.
