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.
I think there would be quite a few teams willing to give something like that. Either way, I am in the camp that thinks taking that 7.5 million and distributing it to other players + the return they would get is greater than anything they could get from Gaborik.
