What if we trade all that and then Gaborik gets a concussion in his first year here? Then what? Then Vanek will probably be a fifty goal scorer with Connolly setting him up for 50 assists in Minnesota. And WE are left with nothing.
I would deal Vanek, Connolly and Afinogenov in a heart beat for Gaborik. A second. An instant. Without second thought.
