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.
Call me crazy, but I imagine Sather has enough time during the day to pursue both avenues with equal vigor.

Frankly, this should be true of every GM - but especially so of Slats, who so clearly leans incredibly heavily on Gorton, Clark and Schoenfeld (and Riseborough and so on and so on) for pro scouting, prospect scouting, minor league management, cap management, etc.
