Thanks! Yeah I really tried to specialize the team into a cohesive unit but I guess that didn't fly with most people. I was pretty happy with it though.

Ability to stay on the ice is definitely Gaborik's weak point, but he's a very good player when he plays. And even looking at his overall numbers his even strength goals are very good - 4th in the last decade with several top-10s.
My third line was Jere Lehtinen - Brad Richards - Marian Gaborik

And yeah, I got him in the 500s - but he was in the midst of that season you mentioned when I picked him - and as he continues to play obviously Gaborik deserves to continue to move up.

It depends on what you're looking for from him.

He has a crazy set of skills but a lack of size really hurts him defensively in this environment.

As a 6th defenseman who is there to be a PP specialist you could hardly do better. He can skate like the wind, make plays and has a booming shot.
