Gaborik isn't exactly a cream puff. He's no Bertuzzi, but he isn't afraid to go to dirty areas to get goals. 17 pts in 18 games in the Wild's 2003 playoff run, in the clutch-and-grab era
in a stifling Minnesota defensive system.
And other than Ovechkin or Kovalchuk, nobody can match his speed and goal-scoring ability, which would both compliment this team and add a dimension we don't have. Adding Gaborik wouldn't give us more of the same because frankly nobody on our team is in the same league as him offensively.
