To be fair, Gabby rarely, if ever, played on the top line in New York this season. And Brassard played on the top line in Columbus. You're not really comparing peaches to peaches here. Both are top line players in C-bus, neither are top line players in New York. Both are quite streaky, Gabby costs a lot more. I love Gaborik, think his skill is other worldly, but do see how this trade potential could have been a win for NYR based upon needs.
