Gaborik is not going to return until the end of this month(if he returns at all).If you're looking for Gaborik to help a team to make the playoffs,oh boy

If it's true Marian Gaborik will be the "shot in the arm" General Manager Doug Risebrough expects, the Wild had better hope its fate isn't already determined by the time Gaborik decides he's ready to return.

Speaking to reporters in St. Paul on Monday, the injured winger said he expects to return from hip surgery "toward the end of the month, hopefully earlier."

That's inconsistent with what the Wild's been portraying the past few days. Risebrough said over the weekend, "Ten weeks [March 16] looks pretty good now

I'm loving Gaborik

Quote:
Speaking of watching games, Marian Gaborik put his foot in his mouth today back in Minnesota when he voluntarily said when asked if he feels the pressure to return with the team sinking, “Quite frankly I haven’t really been watching games. I’ve been following the scores but I haven’t been watching games. From my perspective, I just really need to focus on how am I feeling, how everything goes with me and then if everything goes good I’m going to jump in to play. Definitely the pressure is on, but first of all I want to feel confident in my body and … so far everything is going well.”

Gaborik should probably hire a publicist. Whether he meant it the way it sounded or not, with the me-me-me stuff and the not watching games stuff, he sounds like a player who’s emotionally disconnected, and there were some teammates bemused by the comment. If you’re injured, you probably shouldn’t announce you don’t watch the team that pays you $7.5 million play games

So lets get him to be our big gun! Makes all the sense in the world, because he'll definitely stay healthy here and he'll watch every period of all the games from the press box if he hurt... he really will this time!

Let's give them Gomez, Grachev, Sanguinetti, a 1st and what the hell... Del Zotto too...

stay away from gaborik.

unless hes at a huge discount which he wont be im sure. too many injuries and questionable desire means hes someone we should avoid.

hes not going to help us if hes out of shape and using our final stretch of important games as his training camp- assuming hes even healthy enough to play.

um. no.

I'd love to take a risk on Gaborik if we could lose a bad contract.He is the sniper this team needs,but with his injuries its a risk to trade for him.I do how exciting he'd be on broadway if he stayed healthy,it would be electric.

We should sign him for 3-4 years and keep him out until December next season. Get our best doc's on him and fix that groin up for good. When healthy, Gaborik is a top 5 winger in this league.

Agreed. Gabby pretty much made it known that he doesn't want to be in Minny anymore.

That said, do you really want to bring a guy like that here and start building around him? I have to be honest, that latest quote has me questioning whether Gaborik is actually really injury-prone or just a faker. "I don't want to play here anymore. Ow! My groin! Doctor!"

Pass.

I didn't mean I wanted to bring the guy in. If we could get him at the bargain price of one of our over-paid players, I'd probably give it a look, but there isn't much point other than that. We'd never be able to re-sign him.

But on the same token, there was another guy who the Rangers got for next to nothing because he said "I don't want to play here anymore." His name escapes me, but that worked out pretty well for us.

Don't kid yourself though. When he is healthy, Gaborik is a top-10 winger in this league. If he was healthy, he'd be a phenomenal piece to build around. Not to mention Sather loves his reclamation projects.
