I hope (and it sure sounds like) Gabby will be POSSESSED this year--loving it!
It's in the other thread. Torts wants to split Nash and Gaborik. He wants Nash with Richards, which puts Gaborik with Stepan. Stepan's tendenacy due to his handedness is to pass to the LW, so Torts thinks it's a good idea to put that line's sniper on the left.
I think this will be a good year for Gaborik. Torts doesn't throw praise around blindly.
