Not saying Nash is ten times better or anything (especially recently he's seemed to make a few more poor defensive decisions and been coasting some), but he's been consistently a lot better than Gabby defensively. It's just not Gabby's game.
selective memory. Gabbys been fine in the defensive zone..hes backchecked just as hard as Nash...difference is in teh offensive zone, outside of tonight, and a handful of other games, Gaborik has been MIA.
