This might look like a big difference, but Gorges (10 GA 136 mn 4,40GAA) played twice as much time (per game) on the PK where he excelled compared to Hamrlik (24 GA 153 mn 9,41 GAA). Where the difference regarding top 4 capacity is noticable is at ES where Hamrlik had a 2,39 GAA (1404 mn vs 56 GA) and Gorges a 2,60 GAA (602 vs 26)

While Hamrlik is not suited for PK duty like Gorges is, he is more suited for ES duty on the top pairings.

I'm doubtful that Gorges can fill Hamrlik's shoes.
Also, about these numbers, the difference in minutes is so significant (Hammer has more than double the minutes Gorges has), one would reasonably expect that Gorges' numbers would naturally get worst if he has Hammer's minutes due to fatigue/being overworked.
