In all honesty, Gaborik has done everything thats been asked of him by this organization and Tortorella. He even said himself, hes not the same player they got from Minnesota. Hes mentally tougher, physically, changed his game, etc.

Nash shows flashes of his moves and abilities, but he still NEEDS to produce regardless, in the form of goals. We didnt get him to praise about his defense or physicality.

Anyone wanna review Gaborik's first 9 games as a Ranger and compare the two?

Gaborik 5 G, 7A 12 Pts
Nash 2 G, 5 A 7 Pts

Yeah, edge Gaborik. Now after all these years we can see why Nash is a tier under Gaborik as far as offense goes. Nash also needs to utilize his teammates more. He has 5 assists, sure, but im seeing a ton of failed moves. He uses the body amazingly well, but it still needs to translate into goals at some point.
