On the morning before he passes Mark Messier for second on the All-Time Games Played list, Patrick Marleau reaffirmed his openness to be dealt to a Cup contender before the Trade Deadline.

“If something comes up,” Marleau admitted, “it’s something I’ll have to think about and see if it’s the right situation.”

It’s an additional confirmation of what we already know: Marleau said the same thing last weekend, and the San Jose Sharks have not much improved their position in the standings, going 2-2-0 since then.

If Doug Wilson does trade Marleau before the Apr. 12 Deadline, the 41-year-old would break Gordie Howe’s All-Time Games Played record in another uniform besides teal. At the moment, Marleau is scheduled to break the record on Apr. 19 at Las Vegas.
