I dont agree with Supersonic much but when he said this fanbase doesnt appreciate skill guys enough, he was right and I agree. This NHL you need them. You can have all the grit in the world, its not 1975 anymore.
Anyway you slice it, losing a 40 goal scorer is not something you replace easily, and honestly, I doubt the return or the value we get is going to come anywhere near his impact here offensively. This franchise does not have luck when it comes to acquiring skill guys or just having skill in general, so we will definitely be feeling the effects of losing his offensive ability, and I dont think Nash is enough. Richards needs to go just based on the contract alone.
I just cant wait for all the folks that have been clamoring "trade Gaborik!!" to change their tunes to "we need a goal scorer!!" once hes gone.
if someone offers the Rangers a first round pick say 5-10 range, Sather should take it.. im sure some team will offer a first round for Gaborik if dealt at the deadline but if they wait till the NHL draft they might receive less or maybe more who knows.. heck Gaustad got Buffalo a first and he was an UFA at the time.. Gaborik has alot more value.
