[Rumour] Gaborik on trading block


Recommended Posts

Lol, not going to happen ladies, sorry. First of all, there is his price as named by Sather, which would probably include young players and picks. Then there is the 7.5m cap hit, with the cap shrinkage next year, is next to impossible to fit him in here, or anywhere for that matter. Then there is the fact that he's injured all the time, and couldn't handle the big D in the West, as demonstrated by his frequent injuries with Minnesota. Once you deal with all of this, and hope that he's healthy. you're left with a player that couldn't cut it on the Rangers, with Richards as his centre and Nash on his other wing.

I'll pass.

Burrows is on the 1st line because he is better suited there....

Kassian got all of his points by himself, without the help of the Sedins. There's a stat out there where the Sedins only contributed to like 1 of his 5 goals or something. Sedins were in a slump when they played with Kassian. Put Burrows back on there, and oh hey look, Sedins have like 20 points in the last 10. Coincidence? Nope.

What's to say Kassian can't do that on the third? He's just not trying out there, which has been a problem his whole career.

That's a ridiculous reason.

If a deal can improve your team, you do it. Im not saying his trade is good, but that's just silly.

Just because you just got a guy doesn't make him untouchable. If there's a trade that comes along that will improve your team, no matter what players are involved, you do it.

You sir, should facepalm yourself.

The Rangers just keep on keeping on with the failing approach of chasing every big shiny name on the market...

I personally don't agree with the general consensus that the CBJ didn't get good value for Nash - Dubinsky, Anisimov, Erixon and a 1st imo was a good return.

The Rangers success last year imo was due to the fact that they finally had a roster rich in players they actually developed themselves - Del Zotto, McDonagh, Girardi on their blueline, Callahan, Stepan, Anisimov, Hagelin, Dubinsky up front, Lundqvist backstopping them...

So they go out and chase Nash to add to Gaborik and Richards, and ironically, have scored the least goals in the Eastern Conference.
