Swimmer, you seem a bit bitter at the Habs for letting Halak and Hammer (your countrymen) go, but you need to get over it. Part of the business. And neither has anything to do with the value of Josh Gorges, which you are attempting to measure by his worst asset (offensiveness).
He's a heart-and-soul warrior who has learned from Gill how to be an excellent #3-#4 defensive D-man. We have our PMD's, Gorges is clearly our best DDM. He deserves a 3-mil per year deal. The longer, the better. If we have to 'overpay' by .25 or .50 mil, whatever. Would certainly be far better then a 1-year deal that leads to him testing UFA next year. You've seen the signings this off-season, look how much Wiz got. Next year will be the same. If Gorges tests UFA he's out of our price range, period.
