Well , that did not take long....

Gaborik already riding the pine w/yet another "lower body" injury. This is getting old-same thing every year- he was offered over $8 mil a year which is actually more than that when you factor in that he misses 20-30 games every year. Trade him Risedork!

I am with you on that a used puck bag would be better at least you could use it every day.

They should hold on to him for a month or so so he can get some value by looking good in some games.

But

If you wait a month he may be injured and lose some value.

I heard his agent is seeking 10yr and $100 million.

IMO the Wild absolutely should have moved Gaborik before the start of the season. The guy is always hurt, he isn’t a playoff performer at all, and he is easy to knock off his game when teams get physical with him. I’m not saying that he is not a good player, but besides MAYBE Ovechkin, no player is worth 20 percent of your teams cap money. I am sooooo sick of hearing the argument from people, “He had 83 points last year. Who’s going to pick up those points if they trade him?” The answer is EVERYONE. How about the guy that gets to take Gabby’s place on the power play, or the guy that is now going to move up to the top line!

What I would have liked to see before the season started was a trade with Florida for Ballard and Florida’s 1st round pick in 2009. I would have been fine with that. Now he’s hurt AGAIN, and we are going to end up getting nothing for him.

That's Risedork for ya-watch him get traded to another team in our division-that would be a Risedork-like move. Gabbys a wimp.

The team is playing well early on without Gabby in the lineup. If this trend continues I think Risedork should trade him and get as much as he can. A centerman, and tap into top minor league talent. I think the team is playing good team hockey and are getting more production from the new people than anticipated. They should no longer look at Gabby for all the scoring if there are more playmakers, which seem like they found from this years free agent additions and minor callups. Our draft choices are finally making a contribution.

Solid player. Would love to see him or Plekanec come in a deal. Both are 25 years old.

    • That is what I am trying to figure out.    Considering the party in the white House the only reason he/she got the sentence changed has 100% to do with his/her corporal Klinger syndrome.    And if that is the case the President should just walk away today before he causes any more harm.
    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
