Minnesota Wild: It's easy to forget, but Marian Gaborik is unbelievable. If he were healthy all the time, people would talk about him like they do Alexander Ovechkin or Evgeni Malkin or Sidney Crosby. He's that good. He's played 14 games this year and only the last few have been while he was healthy. He still has 10 goals and 15 points. Since he came back from his latest injury on March 22, he's netted 8-3-11 in eight games, including a goal against Detroit yesterday. This despite his most frequent linemates being James Sheppard (21 points in 78 games) and Stephane Veilleux (22 points in 77 games) up until a few games ago. Whoever signs him next year (not Minnesota!) is going to get a ridiculously talented player, probably at below market value. I legitimately feel bad that he can't stay healthy. A guy like him playing 75 or 80 games a year would be awesome for whatever market he's in.
