THAT is a guy I'll build my team around. Not some Russian Primadonna that has no clue how to play defense.
I'm glad you know so much about him that you can call him a "Russian Primadonna"

Is don cherry posting here now?

If he came with an extension yes. If not, then remove Kreider or Callahan

That's crazy talk. No one will give you Kovalchuk for those players. Let's not forget there are going to be 10-15 other teams competing with you.

Thats fine, let them overpay then. At that point he would be a rental, not something I am interested in selling the entire future for.

if he came with an extension i'd give them pretty much anything they want not named lundqvist. He's a top 5 talent, probably the best pure goal scorer not named ovechkin and he's only 26

Why can't we just see how Gaborik does and keep the space unused? Then, if Gaborik can shoulder the load we can surround him and Lundqvist with better support players all throughout the lineup!
