Absolutely he could. The Rangers under Torts play just as much of a defensive system. Gaborik didn't play most of the year with Richards. They started out together, but didn't click, and didn't get put back together again until the end of the year.
And Gabby scored 42 (and 86 points) in his first year with the Rangers, when his centers were Dubinsky, Christensen and Prospal.
That being said, I don't see any reason for the blues to make this deal.
