I can only imagine in 09-10 and 11-12 what the naysayers were thinking - "he scored 40..... but he needs to block shots and hit more!"
Do people really think that Gaborik looks the same this year as he did in his 40 goal seasons? Am I missing something? Honest question.

FWIW, I think he looks pretty good tonight.

Another stellar game from Mr. Invisible! Get that number 10 jersey up to the rafters and fast!

Another lackluster effort from Gaborik tonight, there's a reason why Torts benched him early in the 3rd in favor of Haley (not sure why Haley and not someone else though).

Gabby also could've prevented the 3rd goal if he showed some effort and at least tried to block the shot from the point. I have his jersey, it's just tough to watch him play sometimes

really nice to see gaborik put in the minimal amount of effort when the games already out of hand to save face. let him dog it in the ****ing press box on thursday, just dont announce hes out of the lineup swap him with bickel right before the game and NOBODY will know.

This team needs to rid itself of Richards' and Gáborík's contracts.

I am sick and tired of his half ass play.

The guy is invisible far too often.

Pretty much. We would shave off $14 million.

Gabby did the whole disappearing act thing during his 40-goal seasons as well, but I can't recall him putting in such a halfhearted effort as often as he has this season.

He usually has a few games a year where he needs to be benched or yelled at ("are you gonna stop on one tonight?"). But this season, it seems like he's being benched almost every other game. He barely utilizes his speed anymore, it looks like he's mailing it in on some shifts.

This is by far Gaborik's worst season as a NYR. doesn't skate anymore, plays on the perimeter...useless.

Gabby is not a left wing. Torts has lost his mind.

You're still left with the Rangers paying a butt load for FAs that - sooner or later - no longer give a **** and are just there to collect a paycheck.

I think Gaborik could benefit from a change of scenery this offseason. However, for a team incapable of scoring consistently, you can't deal him now.

Why is Tortorella playing him on the wrong side?

I really think he needs to be back on the right side. You don't **** with a guys position who has scored 40 goals consistently.

Gaborik's sole mission on the ice this game, as it is most games, is to avoid being body checked. Nothing else matters much to him

Logic.

Dont act as if hes still adjusting to playing a position hes never played before fellas.

Jesus.

I really dont care anymore to be honest. The more he pisses you off, the better. The coaching is amazing.

Lets try him in goal too and get pissed when he doesnt get a shutout.

I thought he looked good in the first period. More engaged in the game. I think all of the penalties in the 2nd ****ed with all of the offensive players. Not an excuse to not show up in the third, though. Brian Boyle or not.

let me get this straight, you want Gaborik blocking a shot? are we trying to get him hurt?

And for the record, I thought he had a good game and looked engaged.

He wasnt on the ice for a large stretch at the end of the second because we'd rather take penalty after penalty instead.

Nash and Richards werent on for a long time either.

playing his off side when Nash was a LW pretty much his whole career

I want him to show some ****ing effort to help us win a game Lundsanity. Maybe not do a Callahan dive to block a shot, but do more than standing up like he's got a stick down his back and just using his blade.
