We need a goal scorer and imo Gaborik if healthy, can actually be a top 10 in the NHL kind of guy. I agree he is a question mark in terms of health though, but as others have speculated, could just be awful luck.
I think he's one of those players who is worth the risk. Only problem is I doubt we'd really want to risk it for more then a 2 year deal and he likely could find at least a 3-5 year deal elsewhere, from a more desperate team.
That is what I would want also, a goalscorer like him or Kovalchuk. Personally I would take either of them over Lecavalier but that is just me.
