Basically, you aren't going to get a useful comment from CBJ fans on this thread at this time so why even bother asking? The scenario is either the Jackets are doing well and so they won't let Gaborik go or the Jackets are at the bottom of the standings and we CBJ fans aren't around to comment because we've all just collectively jumped off a bridge.
Well the premise of the OP seems to be talking about if Columbus isn't doing well and they decide to trade Gaborik. Sure it's not the ideal situation for Columbus or its fans, but it's a very possible situation.

It's too bad Gaborik and Torts don't get along. I'd be willing to offer something like Jensen + cond. 1st on Gaborik re-signing if they could sort out their differences.
