I was just reading the Minnesota Wild blogger...looks like Gaborik is now out for the season...and an UFA on July 1..... his salary likely to be less the the $8M the Wild offered. Without hesitation I would sign Gabs and let Kovy go. Gabs can do the same as Kovy and is only 29 I think.

One other thought...I think I would overpay to get a guy like Artyukhin in a Habs uniform. A 4th line of Arty/Laps/Lats would be interesting
