Gorges hasn't been dissed at all. Qualifying him is a formality. It doesn't mean they're not going to offer him a long term deal. If they don't, then there's good reason to complain. For the moment, it's a no brainer that PG deals with his pending UFAs before they hit the open market, along with the simple resignings like AK and Gill where they basically just extended the existing contracts a year. Gorges will be signed to a multi-year deal at a big raise after July 1, IMO. The questions are how much for how long, but unless he's asking for the moon I don't see a problem. The team has money and Gorges small frame and limited offense should keep his price to something reasonable. Agree with you it would be ridiculous to sign him to a one year and start him on the path to leaving as a UFA.
