Then factor in Gaborik's injury history.

I'd rather have Nash, pretty easily, even if contracts were equal (which they aren't).
3 yrs is a neglible difference between the two imo.

Gaborik injuries are also exaggerated IMO. He hasn't been that bad with the Rangers, now that his shoulder seems to be re-developed.

One player had 42g and 76 pts leading a division winner in scoring, the other had 59 pts on a terrible team being spoonfed minutes.
