Perfectly healthy, around 20-25. Top 4 or 5 pure goalscorers in the league, decent on the backcheck, okay physically.

Rest of the forwards? Outside top 15 easily. He's not quite the same player he once was, even if he is completely healthy.

Let's say he plays 82 games for the Kings next season, i think he's good for 60-65 points and around 30 goals. But he doesn't bring anything else to the table really. If he ain't scoring nobody will notice him.

Daniel is more of a shooter, Henrik is the playmaker.

Used to be considered fringe top 10 in 09, where he had above a ppg season his last 5 and a 1.11 ppg during that time. So healthy, top 10.

Even then he wasnt really healthy.

Gaborik at his absolute best was MAYBE top 10.

Too bad for that wonky groin (I think it was at least)

Gaborik > Nash
That is all

Somewhere in the top 20-25 I'd say
Granted everyone is healthy I'd take the following ahead of Gaborik without thinking about it too much:

Crosby
Malkin
Ovechkin
Stamkos
Giroux
Datsyuk
Zetterberg
Toews
Getzlaf
Perry
Kessel
Kane
Kopitar
Backstrom
Bergeron
Hossa
Parise

Then there's a whole bunch in the same stratosphere

Staal
Spezza
Vanek
Pacioretty
Semin
Sedin
Sedin
Kesler
Marleau
Pavelski
Thornton
St. Louis

Maybe I forgot some players but something along these lines in my books.
