Along the boards and infront of the net is where he tends to struggle more so.


Considering Kaberle is likely still in the mix, in terms of balancing things out..


Gorges game likely to take a hit from having to cover Kaberle, but it should also make it a useful pairing. Emelin-Diaz despite inexperience are relatively solid defensively. Gorges can play with Subban in the dying minutes and the PK.
That IS his game, he is a defensive dman, he covers for his partner. This isn't rocket science.

What no more breakaways for Gorges because of darn Kaberle weighing him down?
