Initially I didnt believe in the idea of trasding Gaborik. I see him as the Free agent signing that acutally worked out well. In addition, I see him as the pure "All-star" sniper that the Rangers needed in order to match firepower of teams like the Penguins.

As this team developed players are sort of finding thier roels/positions with the club.


Gaborik didnt tranistion well to the left side.

But...if he is on the block like Garrioch suggest, whats the point in bringing in another RW in Perry? While I asgree Perry fits the team description moreso than Gaborik does does that mean Nash switches to the off wing? Nash being a Left you would think might work well however he is clearly the teams best player on the Right side. In addition...Perry is UFA next season. Gaborik is signed one more year. Pending UFA Perry for a 2year signed Gaborik is not an equal return. Unless of the course the grand scheme of things is a Richards buyout and A signed Getzlaf/Perry combo in 2013/2104?

Top 6 would then be rediculous...but could it actually work under the cap?
