GLENDALE Jeremy Roenicks latest shots at Patrick Marleau didnt come as much of a surprise.
Marleaus reaction to Roenicks latest criticism, written on Roenicks blog on NHL.com on Thursday, was also not very shocking.
No, its not worth my time, or anything, replied Marleau, when the subject was broached after an afternoon practice in Glendale, AZ, where the Sharks will face the Coyotes on Saturday night.
REWIND: Ex-Shark Roenick rips Marleau -- again
When asked what went on between Marleau and Roenick when the two were teammates on the Sharks, to spawn repeated negative comments from the future Hall-of-Famer-turned analyst, Marleau said: Its not even worth talking about.
After calling Marleau gutless during the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs last year, Roenick once again questioned Marleaus drive in his blog about the Sharks recent struggles, saying: You're not going to get any consistency out of Patrick Marleau because he can't find it in him to get angry, mad, ticked off enough to help lead this team out of the doldrums."
When asked if it irks Marleau to have someone question, essentially, his professionalism, Marleau said: I dont even pay attention.
So, thats that.
