Logan Couture of San Jose is in contact with Marleau. Last season they would talk and Marleau would tell Couture how things were different in Toronto. Couture wasn't surprised by his full tank or his success in Toronto, but his way of becoming a silent mentor in Toronto is a reflection of the change in his blue-blue role.
