Gaborik Endorsing His New Teammates!!

Today Gaborik finally came out of the woodwork to let everyone know that he is endorsing the signing of Derek Boogaard and the trade for Todd White.

On The New York Rangers official Twitter account Gaborik had some kind words for each of his former teammates. 

Gaborik on White "He can both very well defensively and offensively" he continued "I think he's going to be a good fit for us because he's a good skater and he's strong."

Then Todd White had some words about joining the Rangers that I am not quite sure are true but he said them anyway "They always have a hard-working team. Tortorella holds them accountable and they are a tough team to play against" he continued "I'm looking forward to being a part of it and helping out wherever I'm needed."

Then Gaborik had some kind words about former Minnesota teammate and Tough Guy Derek Boogaard "He opened up the ice for Wild scorers by putting fear into opponents. He's the best at what he does" he continued on "People won't want to play against him. When he gets going and hits somebody, it's scary."

While it is nice to hear Gaborik talk about his former teammates, what else did we expect him to say? It's not like he was going to bash his former and now current teammates.  But it is nice to see he endorses the deals and is on board with what the Rangers are doing.

It was also good to see that Todd White realizes that he might have a smaller role with the Rangers and that he will need to help out wherever needed. 

Hopefully they can find some chemistry here on the Rangers as well...
