I have confidence he'll start potting some of his chances; but he was very weak and very indecisive with the puck today.

As I said in the GDT: Why the hell is he behind the net on the forecheck trying to dig the puck away from the wall? Gaborik is not going to take the puck from behind the net, stickhandle around a defender, and score a highlight reel goal. Crash the boards with Stepan and Callahan, and let Gaborik find his space! It's not rocket science. Not every line out there has to operate in the same manner. The top line uses Nash's individual efforts to create chances... use Gaborik's ridiculous shot to pot some goals and that's not going to happen from behind the net. As soon as he gets back there, he's got to be cycling the puck to his linemates and getting in position to SHOOT!
