I have to disagree at least to extent. Yes both are big time siginings, but different in that the players themselves are nothing alike.
Gomez was coming off a 60 point year in which he didn't crack 20 goals. He only scored 30 once.
Gaborik was hurt but scored 23 points in 17 games to go along with 13 goals. He went on a tear when he returned that year, and the year before scored 40+ goals.
What I'm saying is Gabroik was a bonafide goal scoring superstar. If his medicals checked out, physical etc, he's an important piece, because that kind of player isn't/wasn't in the system.
Its a lot easier to look at this one in hindsight though since Gabby scored 40 last year. But I do think there is a big difference in players, if you don't take into account that difference in players then your basically saying you'd never sign anyone over "x" amount of dollars, and I think there are still situations where big signings are acceptable.
