O lord could I write a dissertation on Gaborik.
Gaborik's main strength isn't his speed, but his acceleration. Few players in the NHL can take off in one or two strides like Gaborik can (including Hagelin). That is what makes Gaborik such a dangerous player. He's flat footed, the puck drops in front of him, and he's gone.
