While this is true, cap space is an asset, I would prefer to have a 1st + very good prospect/young player + cap space.

This isn't just a Gaborik thing for me. If the Rangers decide they don't like Girardi's demands when his contract is close to being up I would hope they would do the same with him. The Pens are a perfect example. They knew they couldn't give J. Staal when he wanted so they dealt him a year before he hit UFA and got a good package for an asset they could not retain. THAT is how good organizations do things.

Losing an asset for nothing is pure idiocy IMO.
