This off season now we need to find a 40 goal scorer to add to the team. The whole point of getting Nash was to ADD offense to Gaborik's resume. Now, we just lost that part of our core. And don't say Dorsett and Brassard will produce like Gaborik in years to come.

I'll take Gaborik's track record over Brassard's and Dorsett's 10 times out of 10.

And 40 goal scorers are tough to come by. 35 point 3rd line centers, 20 point wingers, etc, are not.

And Callahan is a 25 goal / 45 point winger. If he's your second best forward (which he now is for us) your team is in big trouble.
I'd say you're wrong in that you're assuming Gaborik is going to keep producing at the level he did last year forever. You say we need another 40 goal scorer as if Gaborik is scoring 40 goals this year. He's not even close. He's slower and his shot is weaker. His speed and hard shot were his best assets.

I really liked him as a Ranger the past few years. He was the gem out of all the crappy UFA signings. But, this year, he looks like he's fading fast.
