I wouldnt say 3 game winners is necessarily brutal. Take out those three wins and where are we?

We all know what Gaborik is, so why is it always a big production or a shock when hes streaky?

I dont think he had one hat trick last year and he ended up with 41 goals. The most consistent goal pace hes ever had. Literally every other game.
He's got 8 of his 11 points in a 3 game span almost a month ago. 5 of his 7 goals were scored in those same 3 games.

The rest of the season he's been Claude Rains.

And it's not a matter of being streaky. It's a matter of being a presence while on the ice. Points will be there, he has proven that time and again. It's not always about the points. Its about being a consistent presence and creating opportunities whether they go in or not is not the point.

Nash doesn't have to score, or get an assist, but you know he's out there generating chances. Gaborik doesn't provide that, or at least 15 games in, he hasn't provided that aside from less than a handfull of games.
