Koivu for Marleau?

Okay, so my brother offered me a trade and I don't know what to think of it; my mind is saying yes, but I'm not completely sold.  The league is 8 teams, with the starting positions C,C,LW,LW,RW,RW,D,D,D,D,G,G, and four bench spots.  The scoring categories are Goals, Assists, +/-, PIM, PPP, Wins, GAA, Saves, SV%, and SHO.  My current team:

C - Nicklas Backstrom

C - Mikko Koivu

LW - Alexandre Burrows

LW - James Neal

RW - Corey Perry

RW - Loui Eriksson

D - Niklas Kronwall

D - John Carlson

D - Stephane Robidas

D - Kevin Shattenkirk

Bench - Ryan Malone (LW)

Bench - Marian Gaborik (RW)

IR - Dion Phaneuf (D)

G - Henrik Lundqvist

G - Ilya Bryzgalov

Bench - Corey Crawford (G)

Bench - Michal Neuvirth (G)

 

The trade he tossed to me:

He gets:

Mikko Koivu (C)

I get:

Patrick Marleau (C,LW)

 

My initial thinking is that it looks good because I'm getting a C,LW.  I have serious doubts that Marleau is going to repeat last year's performance, but my acceptance of the trade really hinges on two things: a.) do I think Marleau will out-produce Koivu going forward? and b.) do I bank on Marleau's +/- rebounding?
