I'm a big fan of Gaborik and I'd hate to see the guy go, but he's the odd man out here. Nash and Callahan are our top-six RW's, and keeping McDonagh, Stepan, and Hagelin while maintaining some semblance of cap flexibility is absolutely vital.
Exactly my thinking as well. This off-season is when it should be done. They need to re-stock the system and it is the easiest way to do it.
