I think you greatly underestimate the value of a talented goal scorer like Gaborik. A player who can consistently score the puck is probably the most important thing you can have.
I agree that a pure goal scorer is always needed, but gaborik has so many negitive things aginest him with his hold outs, injuries, and not showing up in the playoffs, I cannot say he is out greatest player. best goal scorer YES.. Greatest player.. NO
