    seems pretty fair to me. I'd probably want the Thornton side, but that's just because I don't think Gaborik will stay healthy. It's entirely possible he'll miss another 5-10 games with a groin injury. Thornton is a proven performer. However, it depends entirely on your needs as a team. Thornton will only really provide A, +/-, and some PIM. Gaborik will provide in all categories when healthy. As for the goaltending it's pretty even, I'd give a slight edge to Bryzgalov who's been surprisingly consistent and has the whole team on a roll now.
