The sooner Gabby and Richards are off of this team the closer we are to being a solid hockey club . You are only as strong as your weakest link and in our case...we have 2 . Those guys have to be moved...the money has made them lazy . Replace them with 2 hard working character guys that can score 20 each...and look after themselves and we are in business .
So by getting rid of 2 of our 3/4 top scorers we're going to be a better team? Sorry, I'm not buying that logic. Gaborik is one of the most talented snipers in the league and has scored 40+ in two of the three years he's been in NY. Richards is a top playmaker in the league. He's struggling a bit this year but if we subtract him and add "character" guys then we're taking a step backwards. Although I'm curious who you would include in the "character guy" category.
