Yeah he's paid $7.5 mil a year to look lifeless and mostly invisible at even-strength for 3 out of every 4 games.... For a supposed 'elite', 'gamebreaker' forward it's a bit ridiculous how much he struggles to stick-handle around defensemen and create his own scoring chances.... Some will defend him at all costs but it's obvious that Tortorella is not happy with his game/play and he has good reason not to be happy with it. Nash is providing a good example of the type of impact that Gaborik should be contributing to the team.... You would think that Nash would help alleviate the pressure on Gaborik to score and free him up in terms of defensive match-ups but thus far Gaborik has not made the most of the circumstances....
