The fact of the matter is that Gaborik is paid to be a difference maker night in and night out. No one can say he has been that. I feel the Rangers, given a more deep offensive team by way of him being traded, would be able to do just as well with a team offense mentality.

I also believe that Gaborik is part of the reason for Richards' struggles. They just simply do not mesh.
I disagree. I'm saying he's paid to be a top ten goal scorer in the leauge. Which he has been. A lot of peopke here expect him to be a game changing, impact type of player, but that's not who he is. He is a sniper. Unnoticeable, you don't see him, then bang bang, two shots, two goals. That's what he is!
