All I want to know is why does it matter that Nash is a more complete offensive player than Gaborik - better stick handler, better danger, stronger etc... If those atributes do not reflect on the stat sheet? If these qualities led to him beig better shouldn't his gpg and ppg be higher? Puck possession and control and such don't mean much if you don't use it to convert on opportunities. Nash is certainly a more dynamic and exciting player to Gaborik but a better player throughout their careers? No way.
