My point is that if you have 7.5m, you'll have no trouble finding good players to take it. If we could get those players, Schenn, and a player or 2 from LA who is good, that's pretty much a 3 or 4 piece for 1 trade assuming we replace Gaborik effectively.
I see that you don't think we can replace him easilly an I respect that opinion. I def. think the opposite though. Just my opinion, and I guess others don't agree so I'll leave it at that.
Gaborik is a game changer. He has struggled this year but you shouldnt let that hinder your judgement of him. He is definitely in that class of elite players in this league.
And he was a free agent because he didnt want to stay in Minnesota. Minny offered him a contract but he didnt like it. He didnt hit the free agency market because they didnt want him, he was an FA because he didnt want them.
