But, if you could get a guy like Ryan or Nash straight up for Gaborik, you wouldn't do it?!
We need goal scorers who we can actually RELY on in the PLAYOFFS. Gaborik is the antithesis of a playoff performer. He's like the opposite of Claude Lemieux, who ( for you kiddies ) would score ~15 goals during the regular season and then be a point-per-game player in the playoffs and just be all over the place, scoring huge goals, hitting, battling, winning.
Gaborik is not even close to untouchable, IMO. He's NOT a part of the core. He's NOT a long-term solution. He's not a part of the future success. GABORIK MUST GO.
What playoffs have Ryan and Nash shown up for?
And in what season have they scored 40 goals and 80 points, either?
