The return is very important because it needs to be a quick turn around. Otherwise you're just burning more of Nash and Henke's prime years while we try and fill spots from within. What team is willing to move NHL-ready bodies for Gaborik? I'd imagine the list is rather short and likely gets even shorter when you factor in his NTC and the salary cap implications.

If I were going to move him, I'd want a top-4 D and a A/B level forward prospect, or a 2nd line forward, plus a A/B level D prospect. Plus a first round pick this year, but I'd settle for a 2nd if the prospect was good enough.
