In terms of Value I would say Nash surely has more.
Gaborik is already a 40g scorer on the Rangers. There is no indication that Nash will match those numbers. Nash is not a 40g scorer, he's hit that mark once since the lockout. Gaborik didn't have a much better supporting cast in his first year with the Rangers. He put up 86 pts with Christensen and Prospal as his linemates. Nash has better tools, but then again, Kreider has arguably the best toolset on the Rangers. It means nothing without talent and offensive zone IQ, which is where Gaborik has proven thus far that he is the superior player.0

& then Gaborik doesn't have a ton of contract time left, so it's no sure thing for Phoenix, and Gormley is quite possibly the best defensive prospect right now.

Gormley >>>>>>>>> Kreider
