With only next season left on his contract, I don't think it would be the end of the world to eat some of Gaborik's salary/cap hit, if it means getting a significantly better return by adding a few more teams bidding. We need money to re-sign our RFAs this summer, but not $7.5m of it.
If eating $2-3m of Gaborik's salary and cap hit gets you a significantly better return, it should be doable (assuming we're not also eating significant contracts coming back for him). I'd definitely rather eat $2-3m of dead space next season than bring back an albatross ala Booth/Ballard.
