I'm not sure what system you are promoting in regards to Gaborik but in my opinion his struggles have less to do with the system and more to do with Richards and getting his shot (and confidence back) after his shoulder surgery.

That would imply that Gaborik relies so heavily on Richards to produce and I disagree there. Gaborik creates his own chances. Always has. I do agree though in part because he hasnt really received a pass worth a **** from Richards pretty much all year.
