, I don't want to say that he's on the same level of Dan Hamhuis or Robyn Regher but he does bring comparable intangibles on the ice.
On one hand, you're not sure if Subban is a 1st pair dman yet but Gorges is. Oh boy.
Gorges has no business on any first pair unless it's a Beauchemin to Niedermayer, Komisarek to Markov, Dandeneault to Lidstrom situation where your #1 is so awesome that a somewhat competent player will do the trick.
And from reading that other thread, I gather Carey Price is a superstar too.
Yet with such stalwarts on D and in nets, we were one of the worst team in the league at keeping leads. Ahh the things people tell themselves...
