I don't think the NYR fans really understand that if Gaborik gets traded it will be because they have to trade him due to cap issues. That is the only way it would make any sense at all for the Rangers to trade him.

Gaborik has a high cap hit and 1 season left on his contract. Gaborik is getting paid 7.5 million in real cash next season most small market team just cannot afford to pay him that much while losing cost controlled top prospects as they need cost controlled players.

A young team just are not going to trade away their future for 1 season of Gaborik. It just makes no sense for them.

As you can see most offers for Gaborik are not by the teams own fans it's just random fans of other teams.
