An elite scorer like Gaborik is very valuable to this team right now. He's cold right now, but eventually he'll have that 2-3 goal game that gets him out of it and he'll be on a roll. And you're going to want him on your team come playoff time, not another kid, trust me.
Those kids you mentioned are not going to be top 6 forwards in the next year. Get a young top 6 forward with upside who will fit what the team is doing.

Callahan doesn't score 40 goals, I would take another Callahan over Gaborik.
