You may end up with more suitors in the offseason, though he's also less attractive being that you only get him for one playoff go-round. If you get a good offer now I think you jump on it. No guarantees his value increases over time. And what if he hurts himself after the deadline? Then you're all kinds of ****ed.

If the plan is to move him, I think you do it ASAP.
Exactly. The longer you wait, the worse his goal-scoring drought looks. 2 goals in 15.. in 20.. in 25.. etc. Especially if you're giving him crap minutes and making him practice with Pyatt and Newbury.

Plus, every day you wait is another day that new players can hit the market. Vanek and Pominville possibly being available means Gaborik isn't even the most attractive option out there anymore.
