Elliotte Friedman reports that Patrick Marleau will pursue NHL options outside of the Sharks, as there currently is not a fit with his former team.
Checked in today with Pat Brisson, who represents Patrick Marleau. Brisson said the fit is not there at this time between Marleau and the Sharks. The winger very much wants to play, and will pursue other NHL opportunities.

It is believed Marleau would prefer a team in the area of the Sharks for family reasons. The Kings were a rumored destination in June, perhaps that will pick up again.
