Gorges is marginally better than the guys I mentionned.

He's a great intangibles guy, but if people think he's miles ahead of Boychuk and Zanon, boy, has he become the most overrated Hab.

His contract is ok for the first 3 years, after that, it's just too far ahead to really say if it's going to be worth it. He might start breaking down at that point, or he might still be a consistent performer till the end of the contract. The cap hit isn't exactly humongous, but it's not a 'good' contract. We don't save money on the cap hit and the term is very long.
