#26 Josh Gorges.
 
Frame: 6'1" 195lbs
Shoots: Left
Stats: 62games. 9pts. 9assists.
Salary:$495,000
Current cap hit: 0.495
Status: RFA July 1st, 2008

He's shown he's full of potential and that never quit attitude. I personally thought "what the hell is Gainey doing," when we picked him up in the Rivet trade, but Gorges has shown he's fully capable (just wish he'd hit a little more).

His defensive play along the boards is quiet good. He uses leverage to pin players and he's excellent with his stick. He also has room to improve his game and become a solid 4th d-man.

What do you think should happen with Josh, seeing how Pavel Valentenko is pretty much ready for the bigs?

chaosrevolver 04-25-2008 02:02 PM

Sign Josh for no more than 2 Years, dump Brisebois, keep Streit at Forward and see how Pavel and Obi do in training camp.

Darz 04-25-2008 02:02 PM

Gorges will be signed to a new three year deal. :handclap:

Iwishihadacup 04-25-2008 02:03 PM

three years for the captain in kelowna

Jee 04-25-2008 02:04 PM

Gorges has been my favourite D-man this season. clearly underrated.

buddahsmoka1 04-25-2008 02:04 PM

Gorges is probably a top 5 bottom pairing guy in the league, and I'm not even being a homer. Lock him up Gainey.

compile 04-25-2008 02:04 PM

He's really impressive, specially when he makes a mistake, and makes sure he's back into position. He's a really smart D.

I call, Gainey robbery on this one.

Who the hell picked "Let him walk"

What the...

Pacman? Jones? NFL?
Valentenko?
Who is this Pacman?

Slick Nick 04-25-2008 02:13 PM

Very smart player, great active stick... should ge better with some age.

Habs 4 Life 04-25-2008 02:14 PM

Signed for 3+ years

This is a perfect #5-6 type of defenceman.Sign him long term

I would rather have him then Streit

The player we drafted with SJ's #1 pick last year. Max Pacioretty

compile 04-25-2008 02:18 PM

Umm...
Max isn't a defender. :amazed:

Why compare a defender to a forward I dunno.

Joey 04-25-2008 02:18 PM

The pleasure of this situation is that he's young and could still improve in strides within 2, 3, 4 years. For how great he looks, you know he has it in him to just get even better.

Guy Caballero 04-25-2008 02:19 PM

Great 5-6 man. Steady as a rock. You can't fill a team with Markovs, but Gorges is as good as they come in the "stay at home bottom pairing" role.

compile 04-25-2008 02:20 PM

I think he's a good 5-6 now. Give him a year he'll be a 3-4 player.

You said what a steal to get Gorges for Rivet. I replyed just wait till Pacioretty shows up, then you will know how much of a steal it is.

compile 04-25-2008 02:22 PM

Oh.
Ya I meant presently playing. Lol. Who knows how Max will turn out?
I think i'll start threads like this for all the RFA's. We have a few of them.

Blind Gardien 04-25-2008 02:27 PM

I'll take that 3-year contract. As a Habs fan. I dunno if Gorges (or his agent) would be quite so wise to do so. I mean, look what Bouillon got. Maybe bridging towards the UFA threat would work out better for him.

Here's hoping Habs fans don't set the bar *too* high for Gorges, though. We tend to eat our bottom pairing defensemen alive, drown them in vats of unrealistic expectations. I like Gorges a lot. But I don't want him to be the next in a long line of coin-toss victims.

Bad Natey 04-25-2008 02:28 PM

I'd give him $5M over 4 years.

Perhaps, but I'd like to be 100% sure before acting on this. Giving a 5-6 guy top-4 minutes (and money) can sink your team. Look what we went through with Brisebois and Rivet. Even Quintal was being given top 4 minutes at one point. It killed us.

LeMAD 04-25-2008 02:31 PM

Gorges is a good #7 Dman, but I don't think he's top-6 material on a regular basis. Not in the future either.
