It's not a question of Gaborik being more talented then Vokoun or Gaustad imo.

At the time of the proposed Gaborik trade, gms will be
A) 1 week away from the start of a strong ufa period , where they can get a scorer for cash alone.
B) Teams will be facing a $10m cap reduction going into the 2013-2014 season.
C) Players moved at the trade deadline usually bring a higher return, then players moved at the draft.
