I'm not going to generalize everybody who feels this way about players like Gabby into that, but yeah you're right there's definitely way too many people who just absolutely loathe guys with immense talent that don't play dirty.

Gaborik is a 40 goal guy with elite speed and he adds so much to any team.

But for whatever reason if he's not throwing his body into guys twice his size, or cycling down low, he's a floater and a bum.

Gabby scores his goals because he's always looking for that open area so if someone else who is doing those things sees him he can capitalize.
