It's 2009 all over again, minus the partying.
This is my first nominee for stupidest post of 2011. Gorges is among the league's hardest guys on his own body, he leaves everything out on the ice, blocks shots with his teeth if he has too. But sure, he's injured because Brian Gionta is little.

Note: I agree we're way too easy to push around and I hate it, hate a lot about JM's style of coaching. But this is the wrong time and place to be blaming that. Gorges didn't get caved into the boards or cheap-shotted by Milan Lucic.
