Gaborik a Top RW

John Grigg at The Hockey News lists his top 10 right wingers and puts Marian Gaborik at #3...

3. Marian Gaborik, NY Rangers
There are few players in the league who have the blazing speed of Gaborik, or who can control and shoot the puck at such high speed. The only two times he’s failed to hit the 30-goal mark when playing 48 games or more were his rookie and 2003-04 seasons. He’s as dynamic as anyone in the league not named Crosby or Ovechkin; he just needs to put together a string of healthy seasons.

...with just Kane (#1) and St. Louis (#2) ahead of Gaborik on the list I think you could argue that Gaborik belongs at #1. Especially after last year.
