He's like Mark Texeira of the Yankees. At the end of the season.....Tex will have 35+ Homers and 100+ RBIs.....but the majority of them are MEANINGLESS. And come Playoff time.....Texeira DOES NOTHING. Just like Gabby

Gaborik is soft, and he's invisible in the majority of the games. And we all know "his game" produces pretty much nothing in the Playoffs. 1 lucky shot from 2 feet in front of the Goalie in Triple OT does not make him worthy of keeping. Kreider is a factor almost every time he touched the puck last game. How does Gabby and his 324 regular season goals translate to Nothing on the ice but a turnover to cost us the game?

He's Euro. He's Soft. He's Enigmatic. He's got no Grit. No Jam. Whatever you want to call it. He's pretty useless right now......

you're being very short-sighted here. You may not get 1st in the east or even make the playoffs without Gaborik's 40g plus his GWG.
Even though he's 2-dimesional, he's very good at it, and he's defensively sound.

People want him to be an Iron man and play rugged now, because it's the playoffs. I get it, but many aren't being realistic here. If others were carrying their weight offensively we wouldn't be focusing so much on the ONLY PURE GOAL SCORER on the team!

He's been a very good scorer for us. He was a great non bust FA signing by sather esp. for the $$$. You're going to get on him now because he's not built like Iginla? Please.

btw. we would do well to bring in Iginla next season. He is EXACTLY what this team needs!
