Like I said, if the internal opinion is getting rid of Gaborik is an addition by subtraction move they might. I'm just very dubious as to what they can really get back.




Again, if you are ready to trade a guy who is a season removed from a 40 goal season for a 3C and RD, then I think the larger message is "We feel the team is best served by getting rid of Gaborik."
I've given up trying to figure out Torts. Fast needs to show he can play in the NHL before I pencil him to the lineup.
At this point, if the opinion is Gaborik HAS to be traded in the off-season, which I believe it is, then I am 100% okay dealing him at this deadline if the return is worthwhile.

I also think the team is on the lookout for a more complete 4th liner who is tough and can play the game. I don't think Sather likes the idea of just having Asham out there for the rest of the season. Just my .02$
