The Heat is on Gaborik

gaborikJohn Kreiser at NHL.com takes a look at the Eastern Conference players that will be on the hot seat this coming season…

Marian Gaborik, New York Rangers — The one home-run hitter on the Rangers’ roster slipped from 42 goals to 22 and 86 points to 48 last season while missing 20 games with injuries. The Rangers spent a fortune this summer to bring in playmaker Brad Richards with the expectation that he’ll help Gaborik return to the form that’s made him a two-time 42-goal scorer. The plan has to work for the Rangers to be more than just a team contending for a bottom-level playoff berth.

…i know Kreiser didn’t rank the players in any kind of order, but to me Gaborik has to be #1 on this list. The fact that one of the main reasons the Rangers brought Richards in was to get Gabby going puts a ton of weight on his shoulders. Let’s all hope he’s able to carry that burden. If he can this could be a fun year.

…i asked this question on Facebook, who do you think has more heat on them to produce this year Richards or Gaborik? Leave your thoughts in the comments section.
