He's been playing the right side for the better portion of 2 seasons and he's established himself as good #4-5 guy playing there. Not saying he can't play better on the left, maybe he can, just saying he's had his best years on the right side be it when he was paired with Gill or with Markov (when Komi was injured).

If we bring back Wisniewski or sign Bieksa, Gorges will likely have to shift to the left side to balance out the pairings anyways.
