That is why Prospal and Christensen work so well with him. Neither are 1st line players, but both have the skill to give him the puck when he is open and finds his holes in the offensive zone.
I would be okay with him playing with Gaborik on the 1st line as long as it increased our depth(say trading for Richards who then solidifies the 2nd line).
I like Christensen and would like him resigned, but Gaborik would REALLY benefit from playing with a Top line playmaking Center, and this organization should make it a point to try to get him one.
