Gaborik has been tentative... I'm not saying he's injured, but I do think that he's VERY tentative so far. My guess is that he isn't totally confident in his shoulder, and plans to go balls to the wall in the playoffs and next season in his contract year. When he starts taking a few hits and using some speed, then he will score. Another HUGE factor is that Richards has been AWFUL, and I really don't think Gaborik and Stepan have any chemistry. Gaborik this year with a speedy playmaking center would still score a fair amount... he can find the seem. Unfortunately, this current lineup means that Gabby needs to create some room for himself.

I'm getting a damn good package for him or I'm hanging on... I really believe that 35+ goals in a contact year is going to happen.
