Maybe Gaborik has better numbers but Little is an affordable and versatile player that many teams want and need. As a Habs fan Little makes sense but Gaborik doesn't unless you want Bourque + Kaberle or Gionta which doesn't help you at all. With a shrinking cap next year there will be even less interest in Gaborik.

Little will fetch a good young player or two on a good contract in return and Gaborik might fetch a Heatley or someone like that.

Look at what we got for Cole, I'd rather have Cole then Gaborik because of cap space and all we got was a 3rd and an expiring contract for a 35 goal scorer last year. It's all about freeing up cap space not adding $7.5 million when teams have to shed $5 million or so.

Zach B. would be worth about the same as what J. Staal fetched last year and Del Zotto would never get anything near that in trade.
I liked Little in Atlanta. More trade value than Gaborik? No way in hell.

I don't even know where to begin with this.
