Well Patty Marleau is one of the best players in the game, and I think what he's going through is an aberration; I mean he's averaging over 30 goals a year the last 3 years and some people don't realise he's the leading scorer in the playoffs the last 3 years. He's tied with Iginla--20 goals. I think he's trying to do too much. There's some nights he doesn't quite do enough, but I think in most cases it's trying to do too much. Trying to beat that one guy and the way teams defend in this day and age it can be frustrating and he will come out of it--he's too good a hockey player not to.
Do you worry about him? I worry about him because I know how he keeps it inside him. You lived with him and you know what he's all about. A lot of people look at him and go, "Geez, what's going through his mind?" It's deep in his heart and it bothers him more than anybody, but I will tell you this is only a progress report, it's not a report card--he'll be there.
