Why should Torts cater to Gaborik and place him ahead of Callahan when he's been absolutely invisible? If Gaborik wants to play RW, learn how to forecheck and play the body. Don't see rewarding him for **** poor play. If Gaborik was skating and playing hard, yea sure, bump him over/up. But for how he's been playing? **** no. Skate him on the third line (or on the LW) until he earns it.
You don't pay someone 7.5 mil and have him play on his off-wing. Completely asinine.
