What a joke. Once again, some people here don't seem to understand the concept of two parties being involved in a negotiation. Why on earth would Gorges agree to a multi-year deal when he's coming off major knee surgery and knows that a big year this season would do wonders in boosting his value around the league? From the player's point of view, it makes absolutely no sense. But no, of course, it's the Canadiens who messed up by not making him sign a contract he'd have to be an idiot to agree to.
