Marian Gaborik, New York Rangers -- Here's a scary thought for Rangers fans: Gaborik had 42 goals, stayed healthy enough to play 76 games -- and the team still missed the playoffs. With no new offensive savior on the horizon and no one else on the roster who scored more than 20 goals, Gaborik will have to do at least as well (and stay at least as healthy) in his second season in the Big Apple as he did in his first for the Rangers to get back into the playoffs.
...despite all the rumors this summer about the Rangers interest in players such as Richards, Frolov, etc. I still don't see Sather bringing anyone in, meaning Gaborik will be relied on heavily to carry the offensive load once again.
...i said this yesterday, guys like Dubinsky, Callahan, Anisimov and Drury are really going to have to step it to alleviate some of this pressure off of Gaborik. It's just not fair that he will be counted on night in and night out.
