Your injury point is valid, but to say he wouldn't have produced is ludicrous. Marian Gaborik is one of the elite players in the NHL. He spent almost his entire career playing in Jacques Lemaire's pathetic boring system with little offensive help and still put up amazing numbers.

He would have been absolutely magic playing with Kopitar and imagine the Kings PP for years to come with Kopitar, Doughty, Gaborik and Johnson.

Kings potential lineup last season if they had signed Gaborik...

Gaborik - Kopitar -Williams
Frolov - Stoll - Brown
Richardson - Handzus- Simmonds

Doughty- Scuderi
Johnson- Quincey
OD- Greene

I think thats a much much stronger team than we had this season.
