If they offered Dubi, AA, Erixon and a 1st for Gabby, I'd say no. But that's more to do with my opinion of those players than anything else. The same sort of package from another team might change my mind.
I would be looking for a return similar to that of Brent Burns who was a UFA in a year when he was traded to SJ.

Coyle + 1st + Seto I believe it was.
