Oh, sure, you could have been part of the Columbus fan base and watched your team make one of the biggest moves in the teams' history, acquiring Marian Gaborik, but then, you would probably have to live in Ohio and be a Blue Jackets' fan. Or you could be a Wild fan, who has watched the team suddenly spend all of their money on all of the players, but then have the sinking realization that they sunk a hell of a lot of their future into Jason Pominville.  No no, fans of teams mentioned in the title of this post, it was indeed YOU who won the trade deadline. Take a look at what these media virtuosos have to say! "On the bright side, Patrick Sharp and Marian Hossa should be returning to the lineup soon—giving the 'Hawks a much needed offensive boost. The return of these two players would be just as good as a trade for a team struggling to find consistency." "Getting Bertuzzi, Helm, Samuelsson back will be like trade acquisition" "...g...

Quick thinking (and decision making) lands Gaborik in Columbus

You think Marian Gaborik is fast? Well, actually youre right, he is. But you want to know whats really fast, as in Mach V fast? That would be the amount of time Gaborik had to research his potential new franchise and decide whether or not to waive his no-trade clause. It was like 45 minutes or so, with a guy literally camped outside his door with the official waiver, awaiting his...

Was Gaborik a Locker Room Cancer?

I've received a ton of e-mail and tweets lately regarding why the Rangers turnaround has been so dramatic since the Marian Gaborik trade. I've been asked if I thought Gaborik was possibly a cancer in the locker room and there was even a great conversation in the comments section of the Rangers/Hurricanes recap on this subject in response to Henrik Lundqvist's comments...

Grading Gaborik’s career as a Ranger

Throughout the course of his career as a Ranger, I was always pretty supportive of Marian Gaborik. While I understand some fans appreciate powerforwards more so than pure snipers, I try not to weigh one skill set vs. the other. At the end of the day, teams need skill and will players to create offensive balance. Indeed, Gaborik wasn’t one who created offense by lugging the puck...

Renee & Sheri: NYR – It’s Alive!

NYR: It’s Alive! Muahhaha Questionable right? We thought the New York Rangers had died too. But some life has been revived in the boys in blue! Since trading Marian Gaborik this past Wednesday, the Rangers are 2-0-1 as they vie feverishly for a playoff position. With Gaborik’s exit, cue Brassard, Zuccarello & Clowe’s entrance to [...]

Whats in a number?

Im going so far out on a limb here, I believe you can hear it cracking from Columbus up to Cleveland and down to Cincinnati. Im saying no one in the history of the NHL has ever completed the trifecta that Blue Jackets center Mark Letestu did last week: In the same week, Letestu scored a huge OT goal to beat the Anaheim Ducks at Nationwide Arena, he signed a two-year contract extension...

Blue Jackets 4, Sharks 0

Sergei Bobrovsky picked up his fourth career shutout - all in his last 15 games - and newcomer Marian Gaborik had a goal and an assist Tuesday night, leading the Columbus Blue Jackets to a 4-0 win over the San Jose Sharks. Matt Calvert, James Wisniewski and Ryan Johansen also scored for the Blue Jackets, who had lost their last two games. Bobrovsky didn't have a shutout in...
