well its apparently not just what we see, its what the habs brass sees as well. They see a guy very capable of playing 17 minutes a game which anyone with hockey knowledge is more than just a #7 defenseman.

O'byrne may have the upside of a top 4 but that doesn't somehow make Gorges a number 7. Gorges play makes him a number 5. Thats likely all he will max out as but again it doesn't make him a reserve defenseman like you say.

no matter what you say about lack of elite skills, or size or physical play or upside, what he does on the ice constitutes a top 6 defenseman. I don't even know how one can even come up with him as a 7.
