The only way is if he is sent to another contender (one that must be better than Toronto), and they retain salary. It would open up cap space for 1 year and allow you to play someone more effective. The biggest things are: (1) does Marleau have any interest in this, and (2) are there any suitors for him. Personally, I can't imagine many cup contending teams wanting a 4 or 5 million dollar 40 year old man to play on their 4th line. In other words, Patty Marleau will be a leaf next year.
