Gaborik won't be coming back any time soon... Not with the news today that he's asking for 6.5 million a year and the Wild offererd his a 3 year deal worth 9.45 total, plus about 1.75 million a year in bonus potential...

He is WAY WAY WAY over valuing himself... I cannot stand when players expect to get paid based off of potential, and not based off of performance... I mean, he's a very good player, but not even close to being worth 6.5 million... especially considering the restraint most GMs are showing this summer...

I would laugh my ass off if Alexandre Daigle caught fire in Minnesota this year and made resigning Gaborik less of an issue... Like that would ever happen... But I'd love to see it, just to show the kid that he's not the second coming of Gretzky and that he can't run the show...
