If you're looking for Gaborik to start taking on the identity the majority of the rest of this team has developed, then you're flat out of luck. Hes not going to get out there and start banging/getting into the dirty areas of the ice - but he does have one thing this team severely lacks - skill...we cant field a team entirely composed of plumbers just because they "try hard." Hes also had shoulder and groin problems this year with directly effect his two most potent weapons, his shot and his speed...but thats an entirely different and redundant issue when it comes to Gaborik.

Hes also over 25 years old and not a home grown Ranger so its no surprise to me that hes the guy you're bashing.
