Last season he played injured for team Slovakia, but as soon as he returned to NHL and we were trying to make our playoff push, he decided he was too hurt to play. Why the double standard? I really lost a lot for him then. Either he should not have played hurt for Slovakia or should have played a few games hurt for us. This season he was not even close to what he was last season, slower, less skilled, less confident, constant injuries. I hope he is not exagerrating his concussion when we need his scoring the most.
Hopefully when he comes back he'll be total symptom-free: It's one thing to come back early from a shoulder injury, but concussions can REALLY get worse if he still plays with symptoms.
It's better to be cautious about an injury, especially a concussion and especially in Gaborik's case, so he doesn't re-injure himself.
