That's fine. I'd take Michalek over Gorges in a heartbeat. Conversely, I'd take Gorges over broken down Brewer in a heartbeat as well.

As far as comparable player contracts go, his value to the Habs is comparable with those players' value to their respective teams.

You've drawn up a mostly irrelevant list of comparable contracts, thinking it proved a point. It didn't. Now you're stuck backing up your point with the pathetic last resort argument of "I've played the game."

I actually think Gorges is getting paid a couple 100K more than he should and think it would have been nice if the contract could have been done in a way that included this season, reducing his long term cap hit just a touch. It's really not that big of a deal though, because his contract is fairly close to what his market value should be. You can argue otherwise, but that doesn't make your point correct.
