Not really opposed to the trade, needed to shake up the roster and I like the pieces they got back, but we won't know if this trade was a positive anytime soon.
He might. He might not. If he doesn't bounce back then his value continues to drop while the offense continues to struggle.

Gaborik has looked very tentative to me this year. I'm not sure if he's just lost confidence due to health issues, or he's physically just lost a step. If the latter is the case then we got three solid players who are young that can help this team at least a moderate amount for the next few years in return for a one dimensional 25 goal scorer.
