I'd be looking for a younger second line forward that is a better fit in our system and more affordable + prospect + pick for Gaborik.
Sounds about right.
If I'm Slats, would I take a top 5 pick and a young forward for Gabby? Sure. If I'm a GM with a top 5 pick, am I trading it and one of my young assets for a 32 year old player (no matter how talented)? Nope.
