Bergen Record - Andrew Gross: Rangers' Marian Gaborik a poor fit
New York Post - Rangers coach turns page after loss to Sabres — sort of
@TheNYRBlog waiting for they day you accurately guess my breakfast
If Gaborik is a "poor fit" for this club, then it's the club and Torts that have to change, not Gaborik. This team loses because it can't score enough goals. So is that because Gaborik doesn't play physical enough? Or is it because Torts is so centered on grinding, physical play that his skill guys don't get to utilize their skill? Obviously, it's the latter. 40-goal scorers don't just grow on trees. Are we really going to run this guy out of town because he's not a third-line grinder type like Torts loves? Makes no sense at all.
I'm really starting to believe that this team wins in spite of Torts, and not because of him.
Gaby having "off years" is not an excuse. If you're a professional anything, why should your employer keep paying you more than most everyone else if you only do your best work every other year?
@TheNYRBlog. How about an eggwhite cheddar cheese omlette
Gabby just needs to learn to take a hit. He is soft, avoids checks, and therefore gives up the puck to easily.
@TheNYRBlog Gaborik is a concern for sure.
