I would make that trade, straight up.

Kessel is going to have been a 30 goal scorer for 3 straight years, as a 23 year old, with very little offensive support the last 2.

Gaborik is an oft injured player who occasionally puts up a 40 goal campaign, but has only accomplished this feat twice due to injury. He is getting close to 30 and has a more expensive contract.

Kessel fits better into Tortorellas style of coaching, and can be relied upon. He doesn't have quite the gamebreaker ability that Gaborik has, but i'd still make that trade easy. Also opens up another 2 million in cap hit for us.
