He's getting exactly market value. If Gorges somehow became an UFA tomorrow, some team somewhere would pony up roughly $4 million a year for his services. If you're a tried, tested and true Top 4 D under the age of 30, $4 million is basically the bare minimum you're getting on the open market. But that's all Gorges would get because he doesn't bring significant offense or punishing bodychecks.

For what he brings the team, I think he's worth his cap hit. His cap hit is also low enough that if we ever want to trade him, he will have significant positive trade value.
