I like Josh Gorges, but I don't see the upside of him long term. He's not a pure shutdown defender, he's not overly physical, and he isn't going to score much. He's good, to be sure, but he's basically just eating up a depth chart spot. It would be better to have someone who is equally average at all departments, but excels at one area. Think, Komisarek on size/hitting. Bouillon, speed/grit. O'Byrne, size.

Otherwise, Gorges is as good if not better than Komisarek... hitting department aside, the Gorges/Markov pair is as good as the Komisarek/Markov pair... just look at the numbers of goals allowed since Gorges been promoted, Habs have yet to give more than 2 goals a game since he's been put on 1st pair

- speed : even
- offense : even (both being poor)
- 1st pass : even
- heart : even
- defense : Gorges
- size : Komisarek
- hitting : Komisarek
