That's kind of the buzz we've been hearing here in the Cities, too.
I'm looking forward to getting Dupuis back, but personally, I'm beyond caring about Gaborik. I think it's unlikely he'll be signed this year, and I'm perfectly fine with that. He shot himself in the foot with his idiotic demand for $6.5 million base + incentives - now he's going to miss at least a full season of NHL experience, and probably 2 seasons if there's a work stoppage next year. He'll never make that money back, especially with the new CBA coming up. This was a foolish multi-million dollar mistake for him.
Serves him right, as far as I'm concerned. I just hope the lesson is not lost on other young players who are following behind him.
