I don't think anyone is expecting Gabby to suddenly become Callahan. It's more about some semblance of a base amount of effort.

There was a shift tonight in the 2nd period which was the epitome of what many take issue with. Gaborik just made a great deflection at the left post off a long lob from Richards that missed wide off the back boards and into the right corner.

The Montreal Dman got the puck at about the hash marks. For whatever reason Gabby is standing still, watching the opposing team attempt a breakout. He is literally standing there watching. Meanwhile, Pyatt comes completely across the ice, from the LW, to pressure the puck carrier in the right corner who is Gabby's man and who is trying to clear the zone.

And you know Pyatt didn't get there first because he was faster.
