That sounds like looking for a way to blame Torts for Gaborik's shortcoming because Torts is the current go-to villain on the boards.
Gaborik has played RW this season too without much success. Also, I believe his game against Boston, easily his most effective performance IMO, was on the LW. He doesn't have the quick first step he used to have. His shot doesn't have the zip it had even last year. Those things aren't Torts' fault. Gaborik is having a poor season.
