BTW... they also have a Slovak named Marian that they decided to keep aboard despite him hitting his 30s, and he's still a pretty important part of team
That's right but Marian Hossa is head and shoulders a better all around player than Marian Gaborik is. So if his goal scoring slows down at some juncture, it won't matter as much to the Hawks because he does so many other things well whereas Gaborik is a "one trick pony" meaning if his goal production falls off, he becomes not that important to the Rangers!
