    Nobody should have not seen this coming, as the writing has been on the wall for several years, it was just a matter of where he ended up. Gabby taking his perpetually injured groin to New York is good news for Wild fans.

    His departure frees up 7-9 million dollars that the Wild can spend on guys that will actually play hard, and be a part of the team.

    I'm more upset the Sedin twins re-signed with Vancouver. Go get Saku Koivu.

    Re: Gaborik leaves Wild for Rangers

    Personally I give Saku Koivu a 90% chance of going to Minnesota to join his brother. I think he'll fit well into the Wild's system and give a couple of good years before retirement. It seems pretty clear that he's on the way out from Montreal and the Canadiens signings and trades in the past two days have all but sealed that.


    TRUE AND VALIANT

    I saw it coming im just surprised it was Rangers and not vancouver. I wish the Wild would have gotten the Sedins or traded for Heatly.

    Re: Gaborik leaves Wild for Rangers

    I figured this would happen to. I loved Gaborik, but I'm a Koivu fan, and would love to see him and Mikku play together.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    I heard the Wild were interested in Mary Havlat.

    Havlat, Koivu are 2 of the name being thrown around to the Wild as free agents. Heatly was rumoured there as well. I think Harding will get traded as soon as the Free agency blitz is over as well

    Re: Gaborik leaves Wild for Rangers

    Wild had to make that move. I think Koivu signs with Wild inless he's worried about overshaddowing his brother. Now the Wild need to trade Harding if they can get a bunch for him otherwise hole on to him till the deadline. Trading PMB would be great but lack of production and big contract without the big name will make him hard to move

    Looks like 6 years and 30 million for the Wild and Havlat
