It fits… That’s it, story over… But seriously Gaborik is a one of the best goal scorers in the league, yet most fans forget about him. He was in Minnesota in the beginning days of the Wild a team with not much flair until they shocked the NHL world with the Parise and Suter signings. Gaborik became a Ranger in 2009 and while posting two 40 goal seasons he’s the brunt of criticism in the Big Apple. He has also fallen out of favor with Rangers head coach John Tortorella, even though it’s rumored the two have been working past it.
