I'm thinking that perhaps, Gaborik is a giant stoner that just wants the game to be over so he can eat a bag of Funions. That makes more sense than some of the arguments in this thread.
The point is, people only seem to be able to focus on the most recent. If Gabby had this season last year, and last season this year he'd be a hero who is earning his contract around here. But guess what? There's no net difference. One is just more recent.

Same with the people who suddenly are all about Kovalchuk b/c he had a good 2nd half. Suddenly he was "clutch" and worth it. At the end of the day, the guy put up 58 points in the first year of his massive contract, and wouldn't have had to be scrambling to score game winners in a futile playoff chase if he had helped them win some games and earn some points earlier in the year.
