The Wild were a broken team last year and it looks like Gabby had every intention of leaving. I dont know how many times I heard the media spin this in that to make it appear the Wild were going to re-tool their franchise to keep Gaborik. If thats the case they made a real error in judgement.
Kind of like whats going on in Atlanta right now. Last year it was Gabby with the 'very competitive " offer on the table by the home team. This year it's Kovulchuk.
If you have garunteed mega millions on the table and your truly inclined to sign, you sign right? Why risk getting injured.
The only reason to risk is
a. you're an attention ***** who just wants the never ending speculation
b. you've weighed your options and decided its worth the risk, to at the very least listen to what other teams will offer on July 1st, for the opportunity of getting more millions and a better supporting cast.
For an elite talent... really...how often does that guy go past July 1st AND than re-sign with the home team.
I'm talking elite talent...not Paul Mara.
Selfish? Or just a talented player caught in the media crossfire while he awais his right to free agency?
