I'm also curious how Gabby plays in the corner.
I think Gaborik might be an outsider in this setup. Richards and Del Zotto will move the puck from side-to-side, looking for Nash. Then somebody will shoot and hope Callahan or Nash deflects it in.
Or in the best scenario there's a lot of movement down low and in the end Gaborik ends up switching places with Nash and (Gabs) will shoot a mean wrist shot from the top of the circle.
But if last year (or any other post-Jagr & Nylander year) is any indication then they'll all just stand there, move the puck around and after 40 seconds of passing, Del Zotto will shoot a wrist shot from the point, close his eys and hope it doesn't get blocked so that Callahan can hack it in from the doorstep.
