The point is Gaborik, when he is shooting, can score at any time. You trade him and then opposing teams will solely focus on Nash. If Nash gets shutdown this team doesn't win games. Plus again the whole point to getting Nash was to add him to gaborik.
In theory, you bring up an excellent point. Im just not so sure its reality at this time.

Gaborik hasnt scored a goal in weeks. Hes a $7.5M diversion at this point. I'd be interested in moving him if the return can unequivocally help right now. I just dont think the Rangers will get that kind of return, so might as well keep him and explore options in the offseason.
