The problem is that last year he produced like a player worth ~$8.5m on the free market, and this year he's playing like a player work ~$3.5m.
It might average out to $6m, but the real question is which Gaborik will show up next year.
I don't think him playing like a $6m guy during a season is an option . . . if he plays to his potential and isn't hurt his contract is great, but if he plays like this year, his contract is not good. There isn't really an in between with him.
