Patrick Marleau's hot start has Jeremy Roenick apologizing.

Roenick ripped Marleau during the lockout when his book came out and he took aim at Marleau's laid back style of play. "I will say I'm very happy to see it. I don't mind when somebody tries to stuff something back in my face," said Roenick. "I hope he's on a mission to be as good as he possibly can be." To be fair to Roenick, he never dissed his talent, just his effort. Marleau leads the NHL in goals with nine, power play goals with five; and is tied for the point lead and power play points with teammate Joe Thornton at 13 and nine respectively.
