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.
...is better than either of those.
If the idea was to improve offense, you don't add a 30 goal scorer and then get rid of a 40 goal scorer. Even if you want to call that exchange a wash, the team lost Dubi, Arti, Erixon and a first for what exactly? Space to sign a guy like Perron? I thought the Nash trade was made to put the team over the top offensively until the end of Gabby's contract, thereby solving the main problem that plagued them last year.
