I also question Gaborik’s dedication to wanting to play past this current contract. He may want to collect his pay checks from injured reserve.
I’m not questioning his love of the game but I know personally what it feels to have back problems that limit your mobility. I’m not sure I would like to risk further mobility by putting myself out there with further risk of injury. Especially if I had already earned millions of dollars.
All this to say that he may never really be cleared for play again.
