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

Gorges-Subban
Markov-?
Emelin-Diaz

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

Markov-Subban
Kaberle-Gorges
Emelin-Diaz

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.
Yeah agree for the most part, although I would rather see markov-emelin pairing than gorges-kaberle. I say keep subban and gorges together since they will undoubtedly be together for a long time.

What no more breakaways for Gorges because of darn Kaberle weighing him down?
What gorges game is has nothing to do with the fact that Kaberle should have nothing to do with the second pairing. Unless the team is destined for bottom 3 again.
