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.
It based on getting a team that can have a single identity. It's based on a team that will spread the offense out and get younger and better in the long run.
