Sure, you can get lucky and do what the Habs did and Find McD at 12, or be like the Sens and find Karlsson at 15, but you can also get Paajarvi, and just get tired of him like the Oilers are.

Gaborik scored 41 goals. There will be teams offering more than a 50-50 pick.
Gabby could net similar to Nash. Two good players, a prospect, and a first. 41 goals is 41 goals. 40 in 2 of the last three years. Bonafide snipers still in his prime. A top 15 pick is not enough. And Gaborik can stay and we'll be fine with the cap. Only issue would be having him walk for nothing. Would not mind a similar package to Nash, even if it was 1 player, 1 prospect, 1 pick as lessvalue in rental.
