I think too many NYR fans are thinking about this in terms of what they would like to do to manage the cap situation rather than what Sather is likely to do. He's not going to trade Gaborik if there is ANY way to avoid it in my opinion. Yes, you may think its wiser to hold on to the D and guys like Boyle or whoever, but Sather is the one who is actually going to make the call and from everything he's ever done it seems obvious that he values star-power and anybody who can score 30+ goals more than he values anything else, including a disgustingly deep D corps and/or competent defensive forwards. I'd be shocked if he trades Gabby before losing one of Girardi or Staal. I'm not sure I agree with it as a strategy, but it seems more likely that Sather would do something like that than trade Gaborik for anything but a stellar return.
