from the Star Tribune,
During an interview with Gaborik last week, the Wild’s chief game-breaker used the word confident or a semblance of the word, such as confidence, no less than a dozen times.
He’s confident with the overhauled training program he engaged this offseason. He’s confident his abdominal muscles are as strong as they’ve ever been. He’s confident his groin problems are history. He’s confident he’ll be able to put in a full season and score 50 goals for the first time. And he’s confident he can guide the Wild during a long playoff run.
All this talk about Gaborik’s confidence has General Manager Doug Risebrough extremely confident.
When it comes to Gaborik avoiding his annual early-season groin injuries, Risebrough believes it has as much to do with Gaborik’s mind as it does with his body.
