Gaborik was a big name. More recently he has trended to TRADING and SIGNING for these no name gems, rather than just signing. Boyle, Prust, Prospal, Mcdonagh (who MTL fans swore was going to be a bust) Personally I think Eminger has been a great signing. Again, Biron as a back up? especially at his salary? I think that was another good one.

All within the past 2 years.

And as for your edit in your post: Gaborik had a Points per game average that drury and gomez could only dream about having. Gaborik clearly was an elite or star talent. Drury and Gomez were being paid on 1 83 point season for Gomez, and 1 30 goal season for Drury.
