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.
Im not doing that. At all.

What I am doing is bringing into question the willingness for teams to give away a cheap and notable asset like that for a 32 year old Gaborik, his questionable shoulder, and - most importantly - his $7.5M cap hit.
