I have been saying to trade Gaborik towards the end of his contract since he was signed.

The idea was to improve the offense.

Richards
Gaborik
Dubinsky
Callahan
Anisomov
Stepan
Hagelin

Is not as good as

Richards
Nash
Hagelin
Stepan
Perron (or other young top 6er acquired)
Callahan

And that is not even taking into account the other pieces that Gaborik would bring back like a top6 defenseman or bottom 6 forward.

I would rather have a 3 or 4 million dollar young skilled forward who will fit with this teams identity + than Gaborik.
