If they trade Gaborik they need to look to the future with at least (2) assets coming back + someone who can play now.
like i said, the Iginla trade works ONLY if we can resign him to a 2-3yr deal @ lesser $. No Iginla rental. We're supposed to be ready to compete NOW, so I want a real 25g coming back, not a couple of players with "upside".

Well if Gaborik was scoring then the issue of being too deep @ rw would be inconsequential. Other than that, Iginla is a much better fit for this team under Tortorella than Gaborik ever could hope to be.

Technically Nash could still play LW...
