There is a consensus that the players they lost were redundant and this was exactly the type of trade they needed (just like the Nash trade was for us), but I get the feeling that some believe that Gaborik may not have been the right player.

Gaborik is basically the poster-child for the player type: "brings nothing outside the scoresheet" and those can be valuable as well, but Gaborik isn't even bringing it on the scoresheet this year. I still maintain that there has been a visible decline in his game, or more specifically his skating and shot.

I'm very happy about the trade.
