Trust me, this pairing can play 25 mins a night.
The only reason I would hesitate is that essentially you'd have a rookie with a sophomore as a top pairing. Also, Subban's already carrying the workload although having Gorges on the right makes everything so much easier.

It could very well be too early for Emelin to carry that kind of responsibility and workload and Subban's effectiveness may drop as a result of being taken away from Gorges.

Worth a gamble though.
