Nash is superior in nearly all facets, if not every single one, at this point. I've been touting Nash over Gaborik since the discussion came up. He is, simply put, a more effective player than Gaborik.
This. Gaborik's shot at its best is better then Nash's. Gaborik's ability to get his shot off from anywhere, again, at its best, is better then Nash's. Everything else? I think Nash has the upper hand.

People on this board seem to really give Nash heat for completely ignoring defense, but there have been quite a few situations where Nash has come back to backcheck and made a good play. He's definitely been more useful on the forecheck/backcheck than Gaborik ever was.
