You can't tell me we couldn't have held onto him and traded him at the draft to a desperate team who would offer more. Or worst comes to worst we get the same trade.

I loved Gaborik here and still would have loved him here. He can still play. I am not a Torts hater, but he is not an offensive coach and that killed Gaborik's game this year. The constant mind games and shuffling from RW to LW was just plain stupid. Demotions the 3rd line were asinine as well. Torts does not know how to coach offense and/or pure offensive players.

Good luck to Gaborik in CBJ.
I will just agree with this, you hit all the high points.
