I have to disagree here, though I do see your point. I like how Gaborik is capable in the defensive zone, but I dont think hes a constant factor on the game like Kovalchuk.

Gaborik has two main attributes that make him a great player. His speed, and his quick release. He can be quiet for half the game and all of a sudden dart in to pot one. Kovalchuk has these attributes too, and in addition to them hes much stronger and probably a better puck handler. I just feel like hes more of a constant force on the game, and the slightly better player.
