Yes, let's try to make Gaborik into something he's not.
The problem you have is not really with Gaborik, but with your own lack of understanding of who Gaborik is as a player. Therefore, you have unrealistic expectations of him.
He's got a great shot. He's got amazing speed. He has the ability to disappear from defenders attention and reappear in a scoring area. In fact, he's so much better than most of the league at those three things and that's what makes him successful. Also, he's got good work ethic and he's an underrated passer. He does not have a physical edge to his game in any way. He does not have great deking skills. He isn't great at protecting the puck. Once you understand all of these things about his game and adjust your expectations to suit them, you'll be a lot happier with Gaborik.
