You ask every GM about Gaborik, and you'll probably get 30 different responses ranging from "dynamic 40 goal scorer" to "soft/overpaid player on the wrong side of 30"

Whats the point in a mad 2 weeks dash to unload a player that can be so polarizing, when the offseason provides more time for Sather to kick the tires with all the teams around the league?

I hope Sather is concentrating more on acquiring 3rd line depth with no terms beyond this season, rather than trading Gaborik.
