I keep pointing this out: Gaborik doesn't magically term the Wings into a contender. What he does do is force the Wings to sell their future for a slight bump in their tiny chances of going anywhere this season. If Hollands stands pat this year it would only be a bad move, not the terrible one like everyone seems to have a hardon for.
He scores goals.
The rest of the roster? Doesn't score goals.
I agree we aren't a Marian Gaborik away from being elite, but a Marian Gaborik is they type of guy we need to add in order to move forward.
Ken Holland better get someone at the Trade Deadline on Wednesday or before. It's time for him to do something instead of him staying pat again. It's embarrassing seeing my favorite team lose like this. When I have to deal with my father who is a Montreal Canadians Fan teasing me about the game he still things where not going to make the playoff I think we are.
Tell your father that his team was the joke of the league no more than one year ago.....
Streaky? Right. They guy hasn't put up fewer than 20 goals since his rookie year (18) except in 08-09 when he had 13 goals and 10 assists in 17 games played. You can say a lot of things about Marian Gaborik, but any way you look at it the guy's an elite goal scorer.
Lol at any Red Wing fan who wouldn't want Gaborik on this team.
