Might the Minnesota Wild be putting Marian Gaborik on the trade block? Gaborik is recovering from hip surgery and is close to coming back. But by the time he returns he might not be wearing a Wild jersey. Gaborik's a free agent at the end of the year and the Wild could be looking at cashing in off of his current contract by trading him away.
Any team that takes Gaborik would putting themselves in a situation for a huge loss conisdering he's only played 6 games this year, might not be 100% when he returns, they'd obviously have to give up something of value (draft pick or young star), and he might not resign with that team in the offseason. All of these factors make the trading of Gaborik unlikely but I wouldn't be surprised if a Pittsburgh, Buffalo or Dallas tries to pick him up.
