Yes - Gaborik will be very difficult to retain when his contract ends. I totally agree. Most likely impossible. But there will be other options out there and this is a full 2 seasons ahead of time from now. A lot will happen until then, be so sure.

If one looks back a mere 2 full seasons ago from now - in that year The NYR roster included names like:

Chris Drury, Sean Avery, Ales Kotalik, Olli Jokinen, Brandon Dubinsky, Chris Higgins, Vinny Prospal, Aaron Voros, Donald Brashear, Artem Aninsimov, Enver Lisin, Erik Christensen, Jody Shelly, PAP, Dane Byers, Dale Weise, Corey Locke, Evgeny Grachev, Wade Redden, Michal Rozsival, Ilkka Heikkinen, Anders Eriksson, Bobby Sanguinetti, Steve Valiquette, Chad Johnson and Alex Auld

on it.

Some change now - eh?
