It's a huge issue.

Look at Nash. Nash is a constant factor on the ice. Every shift he's doing something to contribute, even if he isn't scoring goals or creating them.

Gaborik could be an inconsistent scorer, but if he were a factor, more involved shift-to-shift he would create opportunities for his linemates.
