Gaborik to Leave the Wild? is reporting that Marian Gaborik is thinking of leaving the Minnesota Wild. His contract is up at the end of this year and he will be a RFA.

If the Wild don’t give Gaborik what he wants during contract negotiations he may go to a new team.

Here is the entire article:

He’s the biggest star the Minnesota Wild has ever had, but if Marian Gaborik doesn’t get what he feels he deseves, he could be taking his dangle and blazing speed to another NHL city.

Gaborik is a restricted free agent this summer and could opt for arbitration, with the result likely being a one-year deal with Minnesota, according to reports in the Minnesota Star Tribune. His demands could also lead to a trade this summer. What’s more intriguing, however, is the fact that if he doesn’t resign long-term with the Wild before then, two summers from now, Gaborik, at 25, would qualify for unrestricted free agency. This year Gaborik has scored a franchise-record 37 goals while only averaging 18 minutes, 20 seconds of ice a game.

    Alright… at least the leafs fan will have something to do this playoff season. Convince themselves Gaborik is coming to their team next season.

    Antropov and Tellqvist for Fernandez, Gaborik and Rolston.

    I think that is what most Leaf fan’s think will happen.

    Perfect chance for the caps to grab him. He’s only 25, would play on the second line prolly(since ovechkin plays the same postition) also giving the caps two dangerous lines. Caps get another good pick, still would be under the cap to sign of decent center and maybe a few decent deffense men. A pretty good goalie in Kolzig. We actually have a playoff contender.

    This is all just wishful thinking by the way, dont take any of this as a rumor or anything like that.

    Also just like to make a shout out to all those fans who told me vancouver had a great chance at winning the cup, but my idea was you had to make the playoffs first, before thinking they could win a cup. Sorry Vancouver fans. Better luck next year.

    “Lets go Atlanta!”
