We saw it with the Richards trade in Simmonds, the Carter trade in Voracek, and the Kovalchuk trade with Oduya/Bergfors.

The Rangers might actually like a Boedker and Gormley for Gaborik deal better, as Boedker is much more valuable than a 1st round pick that might make it in 3 or 4 years.

Would Rangers fans do Boedker and Gormley for Gaborik?
No PHX fan would offer that or be ok with that. PHX is a small market team I just don't see them being ok with taking on Gaborik's contract.
