Jeremy Roenick said Doug Wilson has a difficult job ahead of him as the Sharks try to regroup after a devastating first round playoff loss to the Los Angeles Kings. But Roenick does know what he would do to change the team's makeup if he was San Jose's general manager this offseason.

"If it were me, like I said, I think Joe Thornton is the captain, and he should stay in place, but they should see what they can get for Patrick Marleau, who has been there his whole career, and maybe he needs a change of scenery and you can get a lot for him," said Roenick, a 20-year NHL veteran and now a hockey analyst with NBC, in an interview with this newspaper Wednesday.

"He's an extremely talented player and you can get a lot on the market for a guy like him, and maybe change the chemistry on the team."

Much of the attention in the wake of another disappointing postseason has been focused on Thornton and Marleau and what the Sharks should do with the two 34-year-olds, who both signed three-year contract extensions in January and have no desire to leave San Jose.

Marleau led the Sharks with seven points in this year's series against the Kings, but was held pointless in the last three games. Thornton had three points, all coming in the first three games of the series.

Marleau has played his entire 16-year career with the Sharks and is the franchise leader in almost every offensive statistical category. Thornton just finished his ninth season in San Jose and has been the Sharks' captain since 2010.
