Two things:

One, i would not deal Cherepanov AND 2009 1st round pick.

2009 is a deep offensive draft, and i would not be willing to give up the first round pick AND Cherepanov. It would have to be one or the other, not both.

Two, We have to remember that Gaborik is injury prone. The guy can't stay healthy. If he could, he would be a perennial 40+ goal scorer. But the plain fact is that he is fragile. Do we cant to give up all the personnel and money for an injury prone player? IMO, it would not be wise.

Now, if we are talking about Kovalchuk, you have a deal. I would give up Cherepanov and the first round, and more for him. Because he is a perennial 50 goal scorer, a year younger then Gaborik, and he is HEALTHY.

I would rather hold off on Gaborik, and dive head first into the Kovalchuk sweepstakes. And get him locked up long term.
