Gaborik is more like a ninja. Nash is a bull.
I agree, but i'll always remember Gabby basically dragging the 09-10 Rangers kicking and screaming anywhere near the playoffs. With Hank's help, of course.

Nash is a beast and will be plowing guys over. But Gabby is not a liability defensively either and has 100 more career points in only 50~ more career games. Whatever Gabby does, he does it really well, and I think he gets underrated (or outright bashed) because he doesn't "dominate" other teams- he slowly kills them.
