I know it sounds terrible given the type of player Gaborik is...but you get a solid top 4 defensmen who is certainly better than Stralman/Bickel/Eminger/Gilroy and can eat minutes, you get the utility/2-way/depth/secondary scoring you lack guy in Vermette, along with another guy in Korpikoski who can chip in.
None of these guys are close to as good as Gaborik even put together, but plugging these types of players into the roster is what I think would help the team. You'd still have Nash/Hagelin/Richards/Stepan/Callahan (and maybe Kriedier and Miller) providing plenty of skill
Why not just bring Kreider up and see what we have, and then revisit trading Gaborik in the off season, or we can just keep him and bring in some depth in the off season. I mentioned a guy like Horton would be great.
