So much emphasis is put on his scoring. If that's all you can do, scoring 30 goals is not that important. His inability to play all facets of the game is also costing us goals. The PP might survive with one inadequate player, but having Gaborik and Richards out there together is killing us. You watch Hagelin, who is smaller than Gaborik, hustle on every play. You watch Gaborik and it's so evident that he doesn't give 100%. That's why to me he's overrated. Goal scoring is just one part of the game.
