Dubinsky

Anisomov

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.
Richards, Nash, Hagelin, Stepan, Gaborik, Callahan. is much better than that. even with whatever bottom d or forward you get with Perron/etc.
