i want Gaborik

if the Canucks lose sundin to the rangers,

i want mike gillis to switch his attention to marian gaborik

he has refused a contract extension with the wild

he is best buddies with demitra , and he's UFA in July

if the flyers can trade picks for the right to negotiate early with the likes of scotty hartnell and timmonen , then it's justified to chase gaborik NOW !!

i know, it sounds like a great harvest just arrived when i say it out loud, but

dammit, a nucklehead can fream, can't i ?

Gabby has no chance of becoming a canuck till next season. and i wouldnt have it any other way. why give up any players for someone who may or may not come back when he is a free agent at seasons end. Plus he is injury prone. minny however is trying to get rid of him.

Through no fault of his own, I am so tired of hearing the Sundin drama unfold. Being so close to Vancouver, all I seem to get is the various theories of the day. Is he coming here, is he going to NY...on and on.

$10 million per...would be better spent on Gaborik at the end of the year than on an aged and somewhat damage prone Sundin. Sorry Vancouver fans, but Sundin will not put you over the edge and get you past San Jose or Detroit this year, especially with Luongo's groin being more serious than anticipated.

Wait and make a run for Gaborik.

I hope so... we all know Doug is retarded enough to trade him for a guy like Ryan Kesler...

gaborik has had to endure playing under that joy killer, lemaire

i can imagine the joy gabby would play with, after getting his release from the wild's defence first and always system

gillis promised a more attacking style, and with our D jumping up into the play, we are more fun to watch

kesler is the perfect robo-checker for lemaire , and i think he's replaceable, not the budding 'star' some people dream he may become.

classic example of feet being too fast for his hands or brain to keep up.

and the way kesler ducks under checks, trying to avoid getting hit, he's a concussion waiting to happen

you can't coach pure speed like gabby has , he's a game breaker.
on the canucks, and almost everywhere else, he's a 50 goal scorer

ok i didnt read all of it cause it didnt make alot of sense. i would talk kesler anyday cause guess what he plays almost every game. he doesnt miss 25-30 games a season and is always injured.

Nah, I'd rather have Bernier. I liked him as a Shark and I think his potential is better than Keslers. Not by much, but I like Bernier more.

Nope... Brent Burns moving back, means Erik Reitz doesn't come out, and Kurtis Foster comes back within a couple weeks.

We'd be just fine.
