I messed around in the Gaborik thread on the trade forums for a bit. They seem stuck on Hornqvist and OurGoc makes some very valid points. Is the difference between a ~25 goal scorer on one of the worst offenses in the NHL and a ~40 goal scorer with a stronger supporting forward corps worth a first round pick, and Ryan Ellis? I'd say no chance. Then you have the issue of Hornqvist being a bird in the hand where we know what he's typically good for and his contract being far more favorable and it's even worse. I'd do SK74, Ellis (I'd push for Blum instead), Yip, 2nd for Gaborik if there were indications he would re-sign after 14-15. They effectively get three roster players given their significantly depleted depth after the Nash trade and with underperformance with some players like Kreider.
