You rarely win a trade when you trade a star for some role players and picks.

The Rangers are in win-now mode.

If I'm trading Gaborik, I'm trading him for a guy who can score goals who is available but needs a change as well.

Pominville, Iginla, Marleau etc.

For the record, i dont advocate trading Gaborik at all. He's still a star who'se recovering from a really tough injury. He's been the team's MVP in two of his three seasons.

I have no problem saying Boyle sucks. But Trading Gaborik for scrubs and picks accomplishes nothing for the team and pretty much gives this season (which is far from over) a death sentence.
