I don't know how I'd feel about Gaborik signing a big deal with us... mixture of excited and terribly worried I guess.

but I wouldn't be surprised to see it.

Gainey has targeted big name guys for the last few years now (Arnott, Smyth, Briere, Hossa, Lecavalier...), and with each successive failure you have to think he's getting at least a little more "eager" or willing to take a risk.

If Hossa signs an extension with Detroit, I expect Gainey to be very aggressive in trying to land Gaborik, Lecavalier (if he's made available) or the Sedin twins.
