How will this effect his "sniper" shot once he returns?

well this explains why he hasn't looked like himself at the end of the season/going into post season. This is probably the same shoulder that was injured at the start of last season.

We have the dilemma of a first line scoring forward that is Marion Gaborik. He is a very talented scorer when healthy, the problem is, he rarely is healthy for a full term.

All we are looking at is heartache and disappointment with Gaborik on this team. He is an injury waiting to happen. Let's cut our losses and move on. Trade him and bring in a more robust player. No sense in trying to build on anything with a player as fragile as him.

He is an injury waiting to happen. On the first line, with a team that's strapped to score to begin with... disaster.

Its more about trading him because he isn't right fit with this group of guys under Torts.

I imagine he still has great value, i dont mind a straight swap for another elite winger

I already said before this report Gabirik plays 65 games and gets 25 goals max. Guy never has back to back good seasons.

I'd like to see you reinforce the "injury prone" statement and tie it to this injury. This could've happened to anyone on the ice. Is Gaborik often injured? Yes. But this far from qualifies this injury as someone who is "injury prone." being prone to injuries generally has to do with poor conditioning. And I doubt very much if you could connect this injury to poor conditioning.

Had he been healthy who knows how much better he would've played. Further proving the point of "you don't score 41 goals in the regular season and then suddenly disappear in the playoffs."

Cally will be next. Watch. There's always an explanation for everything.

Oh and for those who still want to hate, Jagr went out with the same injury against the Debs and he left immediately....Gaborik played for 3 more weeks. WITHOUT a complaint.

Gabby won't miss any games. He will be returning right about when the lockout will be coming to an end and NHL season opens on January 1. Leafs@Wings. Big House.

This confirms alot and does support the character of Gaborik NOT being a soft player, however...


Gaborik is a problem for us going forward as our primary offensive player. Now we need to both replace him and bring in an additional top 3 player.

That explains a lot. Hope his surgery and recovery goes well ... 5-6 months away from hockey might be good thing, as long as he keeps his conditioning.

He sucked it up and played all 82 games and every playoff game, but now we will be without Gaborik until November/December.

The injuries just keep on stockpiling. In one way or another, his injuries will continue to hamper us. I appreciate Gaborik and respect him a lot, but in a business like this one, it's time for him to go. This has become a way of life with Gaborik and if we hang on to him, we will continue to suffer.

Like I said, I respect the man a ****load, and appreciate his efforts and contributions, but it's time for a change.
Good post Hags. It really makes you wonder what could have been if he wasn't injured. It's sad and frustrating but the man tried his best to play through it. Business wise what we have to do apparent--trade him if the right return is available. But that doesn't make it an easy pill to swallow. We could get the scoring depth we lack, especially after a Nash trade for example. It could even free up cap space. If we do trade him we'd have to trade him out west though.

This sucks, but it's true.

True, but they'll rip themselves to shreds using toilet paper as soft as Gaborik.

My respect for Gaborik just tripled. That's the kind of guy I want on my team. Played two grueling series with a torn rotator. Get well Gabby

Yep, I definitely don't want this guy on my team. No heart, no passion, "weak", you name it.. Only in fantasy land can anyone play an entire playoffs with a torn rotator cuff and oh yeah still score 6 goals.

LOL I find this hilarious because I tore my rotator cuff during game one of the Devils series. I'm surprised he could even play I couldn't even put on my own ****ing pants.

yes,having a 40 goal scorer who plays good defense is always a problem.

lets dump this bum for a 4th round pick

A soft player? Played through 3 rounds of playoffs with a bad rotator cuff? This guy has guts, never complained and would not discuss his injury after the elimination game or on breakup day. Crappy injury to have, for sure. Mike Milbury.....how stupid do you look for bashing the guy all playoffs? Moron.

At least this team is now good enough to still have a playoff spot without their best offensive player for half the year. We should be able to stay afloat and then he'll be fresh for the playoffs. This really blows but I'm just trying to look on the bright side.
