I think by now Gorges is recognised as this team #1 D (when Markov is not playing) or, at worst, closely behind Subban, by most hockey fans. I am not sure he fits the "unsung hero" label anymore. That being mentioned Gorges is a warrior so if they want to give him a trophy... no problem!
Plus... if not Gorges... who should it be? Desharnais was an important part of our first line and he received plenty of recognition (by his peers, coaches and fans) so I don't see him as an unsung hero... Emelin? Diaz? Darche?
You know what? Gorges!
PS omg... I agree with Habsterix!
