There are deals that are done that help the teams now. Johnson for Stewart + Shattenkirk is another one.
Richards and Carter were far more valuable players than Gaborik considering that they were 26 yrs old each, signed to long-term contracts and natural centers. It's way different than comparing with a Gaborik who has 1 more year after this one and could walk. 26 yr old Gaborik? He'd net the moon in a trade. I just don't think we'll be compensated fairly for moving him and we're better off keeping him and trying to win now until his contract runs out.
