Gaborik stays. We all saw what he could do last season. He needs to be complimented with other players that can set him up. There needs to be an increase in overall offensive talent to help Gaborik out!

he showed us what he could do last season. There has to have been a lingering issue with his shoulder/groin this season that hampered him, because he just wasn't the same player. He was afraid to push himself.

One player, regardless of how good he is, should not have to shoulder the entire offensive burden of a hockey team. i don't believe management set out to create this scenario, but nevertheless it exists, and he needs this support.

We relied far too much on younger players to be go to guys, because we had no other alternatives. Sather is going to have to be creative in finding ways to sign and trade for additional talent to play with Gaborik.
