Sure, he brings leadership qualities and veteran presence, some goalscoring, but at what price ?

Making him our captain was kind of a mistake, IMO. Oh well, Gorges is prolly gonna be our next captain in a few years.
Thing is, when he came in, he had the right attitude and was a scoring machine. Just like Cammaleri. He was a pretty productive guy and even for his small size, he did all the right things, even crashing the net. He was always in front of the net and as such he was an example to the other players. But right now all his shots are peripheral and useless.

As far as Gorges, I actually think the ship has sailed for Gorges as captain of the Habs. He should have been named way back when the Habs named Gio. Next captain is gonna be younger.
