It doesn't mater. Georges is made of ruber, but a knee is different...

Too bad though. He's an important player for us. A leader, and good defenceman...but at least, Spacek is playing better (and he'll go back on his natural side), Wiz is great...so we'll see how the two kids will respond.
If you can't see how Gorges is too weak physically and too limited in his abilities to play against the other team's top players, than I have nothing more to tell you. Playing 23 minutes a game at the start of the season killed him. He's a 17 minutes d-man. Nothing more, nothing less. On some nights he MIGHT get barely 20 minutes, but not an average of 23 minutes for extended periods of time.
