If this is Gaborik's cold-streak, I honestly can't wait for him to start getting hot to refresh everyone's memory he scored about 90 points as a RW sniper with us. Who else can do that as a winger? Kovalchuk? Maybe, Vanek? not quite, Nash? lol nope, he's scored 79 points in 2009 and that's his career high. He's never even scored 42 goals in his CAREER and Gaborik scored 42 only last year...and the year when he scored 86 points. Nash also makes $300,000 more than Gaborik for less production and more penalties. Just think about that for a moment. I'm a huge Nash fan as well, but if he didn't dangle and wasn't that big, I'm sure most of you would be thinking that trading Gaborik would be the wrong idea. I can almost guarantee next year he will not only outscore Nash, but will score 37-45 goals next year.
Nash has 13 minor penalties in 31 games. Embellish much?

He's also 1 point shy of scoring at a point per game pace and leads the team in goals/assists/points despite missing 4 games.

Meanwhile Gaborik has just 2 goals in his last 22 games after scoring 7 goals in his first 13 games to start the season.
