A 1st from SJ probably wouldn't have to be included.
In what way is Marian Gaborik the "antithesis" of a Torts guy? He's not Ryan Callahan, but Gaborik fits well into what Tortorella wants from his team. He has speed, doesn't shy away from puck battles, and is has a willingness to backcheck and do his due diligence in the defensive zone. He has his moments but all things considered he is a pretty good fit for this team.
Do people even remember that he was third in the NHL in goals last season? And we're going to move him for a 36 year old defenseman?
