Marian Gaborik "day-to-day" with lower body injury; Rangers fans gasp in horror

Mar 2, 2010, 1:23 PM EDT

This morning it was first reported that Marian Gaborik would be
expected to play tonight for the Rangers, after trying an playing though
an injury during the Olympics.

Yet he wasn’t at the team’s
morning skate, and he will not be playing tonight.

Gaborik: “it’s a
lower body issue…I don’t think that I can really come in and help the
team here…it’s day to day”

This is
exactly what the Rangers weren’t exactly looking to hear from their
leading scorer, and highest paid roster player. This is also the fear
that all NHL fans face when their players take part in the Olympics;
sure Gaborik is representing his country but now it’s affecting his time
with the Rangers, the team that is paying him.

    Is it just me or does Gaborik habitually disappears right around this time every year? He never seemed to be around late in the season for the Wild.
