Jackets GM Wants More From Gaborik

Source: Jason Brough, NBC Sports Pro Hockey Talk

The Columbus Blue Jackets gave up a fair bit to get Marian Gaborik. Soon theyll have to decide how badly they want to keep him.

Gaborik, 31, is a pending unrestricted free agent. So its fair to say general manager Jarmo Kekalainen will want to know where the two sides stand prior to the March 5 trade deadline.

At this point in time, Kekalainen doesnt sound 100-percent convinced that Gaborik can be what the club wants him to be, which is the driving force of the team.

I think hes done a lot of good things, Kekalainen said, per The Columbus Dispatch. And I think he could do more.
