Marian Gaborik Will Be Just Fine In LA

from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal,

“Marian Gaborik is plus 90 in his (NHL) career. He’s been a minus player once and he played on teams that were basically expansion (Minny and Columbus),” said Sutter, who saw lots of Gaborik in Minnesota and isn’t what he looks like–a don’t-take-chances coach, even if the Kings can protect a lead better than almost anybody in the business.

“Marian’s played in two conference finals (Minnesota and Rangers). Not many guys can say that. He really skates and thinks the game good…he’s not unlike a lot of our players when you look at it. He’ll fit in good because he’s a smart player…we’ll let him play.”

“Jacques (Lemaire) liked Marian because he’s a smart player.”

“Biggest adjustment for Marian is coming back to the Western Conference.”
