I'd say it's half and half for Gaborik.
Tortorella isn't putting him in a position to succeed, Gaborik has played 10+ years in this league and has played at RW every single year. He shouldn't be changed. Callahan should be playing wit the 3rd line so Gaborik can play at RW. Callahan can produce there better than Gaborik can produce at LW.
Doesn't excuse Gaborik for "giving up", though. It's definitely frustrating, but if you show the coach you're trying to succeed, maybe he'll keep him at RW and move Cally down.
