If you fellas think Callahan is more important to this team offensively than Gaborik is, then I got a bridge in Brooklyn id like to sell you.
Yea, Gaborik's on his way Mr. Stamkos. At this rate, he'll hit 16 goals in no time. And for 7.5 mil? What a bargain!

25 games after 240 doesnt determine that, otherwise elite gets tossed around too much.

Youre cherrypicking 25 games bud.

What did you do last year when he scored 41, after a similar off season the year before?

Are you ignoring his age and injury history? Have you watched him play?

He rarely uses what's left of his explosive speed and his shot is nowhere near the level it used to be. Considering he is/was a one-dimensional player to begin with, it's very disconcerting. RW, LW, doesn't matter. Those are legitimate facts and concerns.

Answer my question.

Where were you last year when he scored 41 after a year VERY similar to this one?

Lemme guess, he was done then too, right?

I side with the larger sample size, not 25 ****ing games.

Its too easy to cherrypick 25 games, which is what youre doing.

What relevance does this have to the conversation? Has Callahan's game looked noticeably off? No. Gaborik's has. Once again, his shot is noticeably weaker and he rarely shows his speed anymore.

I know you hate Callahan but c'mon man.

Putting Callahan on RW over a 40 goal scorer, thats a 40 goal scorer, is not a good idea when that 40 goal scorer is more important to your offense.

Why cant Callahan play on his off wing? Something tells me he wouldve scored on that deflection either way.

Cherrypick? I'm watching the games, not the stats. Last year Gabby was skating. This year he is not. I'll ask you again: Have you seen him play? You still think he has an elite shot and speed? Take off the Slovakia-colored glasses.

Something tells me Gaborik wouldn't have scored on that deflection either way.

Thank you.

2009 Gaborik
2012 Gaborik
2013 Gaborik

One of these is not like the others.
One of these is noticeably slower than the others.
One of these has a weaker shot than the others.
One of these is playing after a major shoulder surgery.

Gaborik also had a groin, shoulder injury and a concussion. Even then, he still put up an effort to shoot and was noticeable.

Ill play the odds and go with the repeated 40 goal guy in the long run.

If youre not willing to stick through slumps, then play GM on NHL13 and trade him for more roster turnover.

Its talent-colored glasses. Something this team needs more of.

Might as well just sit Gaborik out the year then since youre basically admitting hes damned if he does or doesnt this year.

You're the one in video game land if you think Gaborik's still an elite scorer.

His entire game was predicated on his blinding speed and laser shot.

Guess what? He has neither of those now! So let's use logic here for a moment.

Take away an elite player's two strengths and.......he's no longer elite. Make too much sense for you?

Stop looking at the numbers and start watching the games pal.

Coming off shoulder surgery.

Some talent he's shown tonight. His ability to not convert on golden opportunities is truly something special.

Is this another one of those "Gaborik doesnt go in dirty areas" posts again?

How many people need to post this until they start looking like a fool?

Ah, so that's why his skating has gone to **** and why he is prone to just standing around.

Players arent allowed to work through their slumps.

I totally forgot.

People who keep using numbers from year's past instead of analyzing the current play of players look like fools.
