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.
The whole point of trading Gaborik would be to clear cap space in the new NHL environment that will likely come with a lower cap in 13-14. The Nash trade was basically a wash when it came to cap space changing hands.

Can we step assessing value in vacuums?
