The season is not starting on time. Fehr is not going to agree to give up 7% in the next 3 months. Both sides will get serious when games are lost. The players could have hired anyone to give up 7%. They're paying Fehr $3M per for a reason. See you in January.

Gaborik only has 2 years left, ride it out, get him a goal scorer to go with him and see what happens while continuing to build with young players.

I imagine he still has great value, i dont mind a straight swap for another elite winger
Lets see how many others of "this group" would have played with a torn rotator cuff....

You'd be really excited for next season, but now some fans think they were owed more than what they were given.

That said, and we're off !

I would like to hear more about this injury. Small tears can only keep you out 3 months. But this is MG were talking, he should take his time with a hangnail.

Pretty tough playing through that kind of injury, though small tear, painful but with good trainers on hand you can play.

I just read the Brooks tweet and came on here to see the actual injury and it felt like my stomach sunk.

This truly sucks, but I don't care how many people talk about Gaborik being made of glass it truly took some serious nads to play 2+ rounds with that serious an injury.

Truly a warrior and I'm happy there was a reason behind it and not he's a choke artist.

You can't spin it.

That takes balls to play hockey in that pain, did it once for only a half of a GAME.
Cannot imagine two months.

I admire what he tried to do for this team this year. Extremely admirable, makes 3 OT even more special.

However, I still would hope Sather can explore options for trading him to another team ONLY if the return nets the Rangers a superstar.(i.e Nash)

Never felt an ounce of pain swinging the bat, so this doesn't exonerate Gaborik to me. His biggest problem to me was lack of lateral speed and the inability to hold onto the puck when he got hit/leaned on.
WHAT? Hockey is a much different game than baseball. You don't get hit constantly in baseball, its no wonder Gaborik was afraid to take a big hit. Anyone who thinks this didn't affect him holding onto the park are outta their damn minds. Ranger fans are worse than Yankee fans.

He scored 6 goals with basically one arm and played 2 months with that one arm. Injections and pain killers and all. He should get the conn-smythe clearly

The pain was controlled, its the fact that he couldn't do much with his shot, and played tentative with fear of not wanting to injure it further.

Sather already believes he can put another superstar WITH Gaborik as evident by offering a monster package for Nash at the deadline last year.

if this is the conclusion your brain comes to on the matter than your the one with the issue. I'm a fan of Gaborik, but he's just our version of Havlat, or Hemsky. he's a great player when healthy, but that's rare.

he can't play the full season. Losing your 40g scorer as you enter post season, takes your first overall record and flushes it down the toilet as you fight for survival against the 8th seed.

Do I need to tell you what happens when you start a season without your top scorer? Bottom line he needs to go. I couldn't care less if you or anyone else is convinced. I can only hope that management sees the situation for what it is.

the christmas tree he carried in 24/7 gets its revenge

Does make me take back some criticism of him from the stretch run...took guts, which we don't really associate with gaborik, to play a couple of weeks and score the triple ot winner on a bad shoulder.

No doubt the guy deserves kudos, pretty gutsy.

But it still doesnt make it feel any better going into the future with this $7Mil ball of injuryfest. He's running out of places they can operate, quick somebody check his appendix

he just played a full season.looks like your brain has the issue,not mine.he also just played a portion of it with a torn rotator cuff.

what kind of value do you think you're going to get for him now anyway?you arent going to get much for him,even when hes healthy.no team is going to want to give up much for a sniper coming off a major shoulder injury

hes not going anywhere,period,injury or not.deal with it

If by a couple of weeks you mean 8+ weeks then yes, Because he said it was 2 months.

His groin problems are mainly a thing of the past. That's what caused most of his problems earlier in his career.

Shoulder injuries happen. I don't see how this leads to him having an injury problem all of a sudden.

The young players such as Kreider and Erixon will play for the Whale during the lockout. Hopefully Schultz will playing for the Whale too. The CBA gets settled in late November. Camps begin in early December. Plenty of time for HBO 24/7 to get footage. Winter Classic begins the NHL season. The league and players generate a lot of revenue from the Winter Classic.

Playing injured sometimes holds the team back. Didn't Cally play injured too?

His play vs the Devils didn't help at all, I just wonder if a healtier player could have contributed a little. A fresh player with legs still under him. I know this has been beaten to a pulp but I still strongly feel if Avery was at least in Hartford for a call up, he would have gotten into Martys head and a few Debbies which is prob more than what Gaborik did during the Devil series.

anyway, enough of that. Get well Gabs.
