I'll put that on my to-do list to watch more hockey. Not that I am surprised you would question someone's knowledge because they don't agree with you.

1 goal in his last 13 games. 49 shots in that same time period. A good center will not fix that. You call that elite? It's someone else's fault. Can't be Gaborik. Skating in to the corner, reversing to no one and there's another giveaway. Carry the puck across the blueline and make a bee line for the boards, back off from any kind of contact and give it away. Alone in front and another shot directly in the logo of the goalie.
