If for some reason he is still hurt, and they're playing him, and he is playing on it, anyone involved in letting that happen IS STUPID! If it becomes worse it will only affect his game even more negatively, or slot him on the IR for longer periods of time.

To me there is no way management lets a 7 million dollar investment play hurt.
If Gaborik has an injury that causes pain but can't be aggravated then the medical staff should have no qualms about clearing him to play. That being said, its anyone's guess as to why he's having such a lackluster season. We need him to step up.
