Marian Gaborik

What do you think fellas? Sather and Maloney have some trade history and from the looks, Sather owes us a favor for the Rozi trade.

What would it take to land Gaborik?

There is a rumor out there that he is somewhat on the market.

Why would the Rangers trade Gaborik?

A few things that I can think that it would take...

1. An owner
2. A playmaking center that could get him the puck
3. Someone to take Jovo's contract for a much lower priced replacement
4. A real hard swallow and acceptance of the prospects we'd need to give up

Gaborik would be a very good fit for the Coyotes though.

He'd be a good fit for literally every team in the NHL. He's a gamebreaking talent.

Which is why there's no chance the Coyotes can pry him from New York.

Given that the Coyotes system is like the the one in Minnesota he wil go back to his yearly groin injury if he does play here. Id rather have Parise than a high risk player in Gaborik.

As a poster said on these boards many moons ago (paraphrasing):

Gaborik is one of the greatest talents in the NHL. Gaborki's groin muscle is one of the weakest talents in the NHL.

That and the Rangers are going with a youth movement at the moment.

This was my first thought as well. He'd be just as unhappy playing in our system as he was playing in Minnesota's system.

I don't think our system is quite as defensive as the the Wild's.

We didnt have an owner last season and still made moves at the deadline. It won't be anything major but somethings can be done.

Agreed but not a major move like that.

As a salary dump he may not bring as big a return as he should but probably still more than we would want to part with. He would look great on Hanzals' wing and with Yandle and Whitney on the powerplay though.

As others mentioned, next to zero chance we could trade for him (before owner) given his $7.5 million per year price tag.

Still. The Rangers should make the playoffs, or at the very least they should think they will. Why would they unload their #2 scorer right now?

The next corner Gaborik goes into will be his first. He would never get the ice time with this coaching staff. Way overpaid at 7.5 for the next few years. He is softer than toilet paper.

They aren't built to make a run at the cup yet. They just don't have the depth. Unloading Gaborik can help the Rangers with their long term goal of organizational stability with the players they get in return.

You underrate Gaborik's defensive game.
