40G scorers who are 'ok' defensively aren't brutal. I actually recall you praising him a few times last season which makes me wonder what your damage is when it comes down to Gaborik.
He has 4 points in the last 10 games and is -3 in that span.

Doesn't skate, doesn't engage, doesn't back check. Has been benched a few times. The Power Play is brutal. He doesn't kill penalties. He's not a liability?

And to answer the previous question, It's pretty clear I am biased against hockey players who refuse to play hockey unless they are within a few feet from the net, un molested, and have the puck. And?

If this team is going to wait around for him to be a guy who leads them to where they want to go, they're going to be waiting a long time.
