I desperately wanted the Rangers to sign Gaborik, and I desperately wanted them to trade him. I don't remember the last time he scored a goal with that amazing release and power. It just seemed the puck was in the back of the net before you even noticed his stick moving. Now all his goals seems to be garbage goals around the crease area.

What really irritated me was Gaborik' lazy forchecking. We could be down by a goal with a minute remaining, we dump the puck in, and Gaborik is just floating in... putting no pressure on the defenseman... and puck is cleared. As a teammate who works his hardest game in and game out, it has to be frustrating to watch this. If Gaborik worked 75% as hard as Callahan, I can't imagine it would hurt his goal output.
