He could play 2 more years or 10. Nobody knows. I'm just looking at history and the number of injuries Gaborik has had. I'm comparing how he currently plays to what he used to be. He'll be an elite player for 3-4 years probably, and then he's bounce around to teams needing secondary scoring.

Saying that Gaborik fits best on the Rangers 2nd line at this point in his career is not throwing down the gauntlet and saying he's a bum and will always be a bum.

It's saying he'll be most effective over the next 1-3 seasons if he's viewed as the role of Sharp to the Hawks in 2010, Ryder to the Bruins in 2011, and Carter to the Kings in 2012 - that needed goal scorer on the 2nd line of the Cup winning team.
