I would rather have a 3 or 4 million dollar young skilled forward who will fit with this teams identity + than Gaborik.
The first group was six wins from the Stanley Cup last year.
Trading a 3x 40 goal scorer for a guy who hasnt cracked 22 in his career is an improvement?
Gaborik for Perron+ is all on the basis of playing Tortorella hockey better, am I correct?
Btw, for as good as Nash is playing (and this isnt a knock on Nash at all, hes the MVP thus far), he is only on pace for 21 goals in a full season this year. So Nash and Perron = Gaborik's production.
