No offense, but I'll trust Friedman on this one.
Trust the media and the agent? OK, they would never make stuff up either...see it can go both ways...The Habs may have tried a 3.25 type of offer, for 3-4 yrs, and the agent may have said, hey let's just see how it pans out? Who knows, bottom line is Gorges is the type of player the Habs need, a character type who is a leader...glad they have him locked up.

Truth be known, the Habs and Leafs are in markets where overpaying guys seems like the norm...
