Gaborik easily the better player? Here is Mr Sakich's analysis as posted in the thread Gaborik Signs.
"lets compare the seasons that comrie has had vs gaborik
rookie year 2000-20001
Gaborik - 71 gms, 36 pts, -6, 0.507 ppg
Comrie - 41 games, 22 pts, +6, 0.536ppg
conclusion - same points per game, Comrie had a better year due to much better plus minus
2nd Year 2001-2002
Gaborik 78 games, 67 pts, 0+/- 0.859 ppg
Comrie 82 games, 60 pts, +16, 0.731 ppg
conclusion - Gaborik scored 7 more points but was on the ice for 23 more goals against. Pretty darn close
Gaborik 81 games, 65 pts, +12
Comrie (on pace before broken arm)82 games, 68 points, -10
conclusion - Comrie scored a few more points but Marion had the better +/-, Pretty darn close
In summary, I f I am Comrie's agent, I ask for the identical contract. He has put up similar numbers and shown leadership. Comrie has a career high of 33 goals, Marianne's is 30 goals. Pretty darn close."
