As for the value of a signed, happy Gaborik, he'd be worth a top-six 20-30 goal scoring RW, a blue chip prospect, a first, and probably a depth player (someone like Ponikarovsky). Maybe Setoguchi+Coyle+1st+Clutterbuck for a signed Gaborik and maybe JT Miller or Christian Thomas coming to Minnesota.
Gaborik is a far superior player. Of course he's going to get the Rangers more. Vokoun also didn't have a full year left on his contract. Not to mention, past trades shouldn't have any bearing on future ones. So just because Gaustad garnered a 1st it means every third line center is worth that every trade deadline?
