I never understood the hatred towards Gaborik though.]]>
Breaking it down, we lost some heart and passion. I think we gained some better players. Dubinsky is playing great for CBJ, but he was taking brainless penalties for us and didn’t have much of a future in the Center position. Anisimov is a good player but will never become great. I think he reached his potential. Tim Erixxon won’t crack out line-up on defense.
The first, well, that hurts…
The Gaborik trade evened it out, I think. Although, maybe Gabby would’ve been better with AV as coach.]]>
