When I say I want him to play with more intensity, I don't mean I want him to start banging bodies on the forecheck and getting into scrums in front of the net, just that I don't think that we will see the maximum value of his skills unless he plays a much hungrier game in the future. He just didn't seem to have any motivation last season.
This is a legitimate argument.

I agree with this. I think Gaborik definitely needs put a more consistent effort into his game on a shift-by-shift basis.

I still would not trading him for the minimal return he would garner.
