People can argue until they're blue in the face that he's not being played in his natural position but that will never be a justifiable excuse for the elements of his game that he can control and that is his speed/skating and his intensity/effort level on the ice. No one who has watched every game this season can honestly claim that Gaborik has been giving anything close to 100% on the ice in the majority of his games this season. The blame for this lies on Gaborik's shoulders... Torts can't control Gabby's legs for him nor his effort level on the ice....
