If I'm coaching the other team and I'm in a playoff series with NYR, I make sure to send some scrub headhunting for Gaborik early in the series, and I think that would be a blow that would seriously hurt our chances at making a deep playoff run.

Thoughts?
Good point. If Gabby gets hurt(not a stretch based on his history), we really have no other "elite level" finisher to take up the slack. I think we need to address this come the deadline w/o giving up the farm literally speaking. Another area of concern would be perhaps addressing the powerplay point issue.
