Sorry, can't agree. Gaborik absolutely earned his pine time. He was not going to score - he simply doesn't try very hard. In the first half of the game, it was wide open, supposedly his forte with all the open ice, and he did nothing. Maybe he's afraid he'll get hurt if he sticks his nose in there, early in his career he WAS hurt a lot.
I agree, don't give his ice time to Boyle or Prust, they're useless on offense (as is Rupp, Fedotenko, far too many others), but double shift the guys who were creating - Kreider, Arty, Hagelin, Richards, Stepan.
