I don't care about last season anymore, this season is almost over. It is time for him to earn his paycheck.
I give him the benefit of the doubt right now.

There are some bad seasons for every good player (see Ovechkin this year where he isn't scoring like he used to). If Gabs comes back next year and is the same way then I will let everyone bash on him all they want. For now I think he is still tenative.

I understand the argument that he is supposed to carrying us but I think it's just one of those seasons that all players have. Jeter will have a great year this year after a terrible year last year, Gaborik will be the same.
