One of my loyal readers emailed me on the "Gaborik Situation." I have not looked into the comment but I found it very interesting and insightful.
Kate from California wrote, "Minnesota Wild winger Marion Gaborik is now in the final year of his contract without an extension in place. According to the hockey handicappers at BetOnline.com, the chances of the Wild retaining Gaborik this season are a long-shot. The odds on the Minnesota lefty not being traded are at 7-to-2."
Generally speaking odds makers are really good at their jobs. This leads me to believe that it isn't a coincidence that Gaborik isn't playing tonight. My theory is that their is a trade brewing and the Minnesota Wild can't risk Gaborik being injured. We will have to wait and see!
