There is no way in hell Gorges, as a free agent, would have received less than 3M$ per season. So I don’t see how Gorges, at 3,9M$ per season, is overpaid. At worst, he is, if such a thing exists, marginally overpaid. The guy can play LD/RD, he shoulders a lot of minutes, he displays an exemplary/impressive compete level, he is a low maintenance/no bs veteran, he is not flamboyant (far from it!) but he limits his mistakes...

I suspect that part of the heat (by a minority but still surprising imo) he is receiving is the backlash against his level-headed but cold analysis of the prolonged Subban’s contract negotiation.

That said, I wish for the return of 1. Gorges – Subban!

Btw, Gorges will be 33 years old at the end of the 2018 season/playoffs. I know that on hfboards 27 years old + players are often labeled as “old” but come on!
