Not discrediting Tarasenko here, but for a points only league I still think Gaborik carries significantly more value. Injury risk is a stigma that has followed Gabby around for a lot of his NHL career, but he played 82 games last season. Not sure I agree Gaborik is "slowly declining" either, as he did score 41 goals last season.
There are legitimately, maybe 3 to 5 players in the entire league you can say "that guy could score 40 goals every year" and Gaborik is one of them.
You're really considering trading him for two players who have yet to play an NHL game and a draft pick? I think you're undervaluing Gaborik's worth if you made this deal.
Stamkos was asked today in Tampa how he can top last season:
"Well, get into the playoffs. That's the big key and that's our goal here."
