2. Gaborik is hardly "injury prone" anymore. He has injuries since 2010, but he has as much of a propensity to get injured as any other player. His proneness to injury came from his groin and hip problems which is why he missed so many games from 2006-2010. That got corrected in 2009 and since then those injuries have never come up again. If you take his tenure with the Rangers, he does not qualify as injury prone, he has actually been quite healthy.
In fact, his hip and groin injuries were closely related. His hip problems caused him to have groin problems. Once his hip problems were dealt with, his groin problems disappeared.
Great. Too bad Gaborik doesn't fit in Vancouver's cap structure.
