I don't care about what role Gaborik fills. He doesn't fit this club's identity. Parise does.

Give Parise Gaborik's money, you're swapping an enigmatic floater for a never quit leader that can score and play every situation.
True Parise fits are identity but that doesent mean you need the same type of player throughot the lineup. Having Gaborik with his speed and skill set is something this team should hang on to. Yes his play goes south sometimes in physical games and Parise may well be overall a better player but dont alway assume things will be better, hes still are top goal scorer and with scoring being a problem giving him up, during his prime years his just wrong.
