Imagine if you were in the last year of your contract and your linemate decided to go on cruise control for the season and screw over his stats along with yours. How would you feel? Or spending $200 on tickets to watch the team only to see one of the stars float around?
No, you always give 100% of what you have for the team.
Now all that said, it doesn't look (from the outside) like Torts did much of anything to try and fix the relationship, either. But that doesn't let Gabby off the hook.
It blows my mind how people will attack Torts for the smallest things but will let Gaborik get away with quitting on his team. Torts didn't put out the exact line I wanted? Fire him - no excuses! Gaborik stopped caring despite the fact that the team was playing him 7+ million dollars with the expectation that he'd at least try his hardest every night? Well, that's understandable.
The bias is absurd.
