Now i'd actually be thrilled to upgrade Gabby to Perry. But realistically after running the numbers (Its been a boring lockout) cannot see how it isn't Gaborik that is the first guy to go if we have to loose someone.
I agree. Barring his being willing to take a massive paycut, Gaborik's ticket out of town was unofficially punched when the Nash trade was finalized.
With a (very likely) shrinking cap, and some big players coming up for raises, the team is going to have to make some tough decisions moving forward. The window is here, and this season (with Nash + Gabby) is critical. The Rangers NEED to play NHL hockey this season.
