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.
How is 3 years neglible?

Gaborik has only ever played one full season before this one, so id say he is injury prone? Most would. And now he just came off shoulder surgery.

Gaborik had 42 goals on a powerhouse team and playing with an elite playmaker in Richards, Nash played on the worst team in the league where the next most offensive threat was Vinny Prospal, Gaborik also averaged 19:30 min/game, to Nash's 19:05 min/game.

Now take into how Nash is signed for 4 more seaons at the same cap hit, and that included with age, injury history makes Nash the much more attractive target.
