Armstrong was a useful player at that time.
I think that's what a lot of us are hoping for. Cap hit also needs to be taken into account though. I don't remember Hossa having as high of a cap hit as Gaborik.

Gaborik should fetch a Top 6 forward, good prospect, 1st or Top 6 Forward and a Top 4 defenseman. The Rangers just need to find a taker at the right time for the right players. He did score 41 goals just last season after all.
