Trading Rivet cost us a playoff spot in 2007, would you still make the trade?

Only 10 out of 47 games, gorges played more than 20 minutes.
Rivet was definitely better than Gorges that year. Most Habs fans hated Gorges at first. He had nothing flashy, was on the small side, was getting pushed easily...
I'm the biggest Gorges fan, but he was mostly just a throw in so the Habs' defense wasn't completely depleted. Nobody expected him to become as good as he has.
