That's pretty unfair. Whining =/= talking to the media. Gorges doesn't dive, and he doesn't run to the refs constantly - during the lockout he gave interviews for a cause he was convicted in, during the season he gives interviews because the rest of the team is too afraid and ***** to talk to the press after bad game. That's the value Gorges brings to the table, he takes on all the heat of the press (and now, apparently, the fans) and away from the rest of the team.

That's leadership and accountability, you see some people just assume that role naturally and Gorges does it. He's not the ideal captain and we don't see the lockerroom or how Gionta does it but I can see Gorges being a natural leader type.
