Gaborik or Cammalleri?

Taking everything into condisderation would you rather have Cammalleri at 6 million per or Gaborik at 7.5 million per?

Cammy. He's a lot more healthy.

Gaborik. Apparently his recent surgeries were supposed to fix his problems for good.

Probably Gab because you like to go for the home run sometimes.

If Cam got 6, and Gionta got 5...then Gaborik is worth 7 or 7.5

Cammalleri.

He's cheaper, and more likely to play the entire season. Though Gaborik and his "60 goals when healthy" might be the game breaker if he ever reaches that (which I highly doubt).

Habs should've splurged and spent a little extra on Gaborik and Havlat ... instead of Cammalleri and Gionta ...

Cammy, easily.

He's cheaper and doesn't have the injury history that Gaborik has.

Funny how both Havlat and Gaborik put in decent seasons when their contracts were up, in terms of GP.

Cammalleri

the risk of Gaborik being injured again is too much for me, even if his surgery has supposedly fixed him

Gaborik because he's a proven goal scorer and his surgery was supposed to help fix his injury problems. Also if he goes down long term, you can put him on the LTIR which would at least allow you to find a temporary replacement.

Gaborik and it isn't even close... if your not considering health.


I personally like my hockey players on the ice. What's the point of having a 6+ million player if he's on IR. For that reason alone I voted for Cammalleri.

Let me put it this way

Gaborik isn't just a floating stick. He actually does other things offensively as well.

Oh and he's a ****ing amazing skater. Cammy is an awful one.

Depends on if Gaborik is healthy. If I had to make the choice as GM, I'd go with Cammalleri, as it's too much of an injury risk with Gaborik

Lightning strikes 4 times?

In Gaborik's case, possibly yes.

Give me Cammy.

Youre essentially paying Gaborik $7.5 for half a season on average.

I have to say Cammy. Gaborik is better, no doubt and I would take him anyday over Cammy if he was able to remain healthy. Being a fan of a team where your captain is constantly hurt is very discouraging. I want to pick Gaborik but I have to go with the guy who's less injury prone.

Gaborik is definitely more talented but I would take Cammalleri for reasons already mentioned.
