Thikning beyond this season, I do fear the organization gave up on Gaborik prematurely. I feel that ultimately over the long haul this team will still suffer from the same lack of scoring that's plagued them for multiple seasons now.

At the end of the day, regardless of what happens the rest of this season and playoffs (hopefully), this team will need another goal scorer in order to have success over the next 82 game season, and i do not belive he is on our roster right now.
His name is Brad Richards. If he picks his game up, this team will be fine. With their additions, they should have (3) scoring lines. Alleviates a lot of pressure from Nash and Richards to do it all.
