This is coming from a fan that don't really like Gionta and would like Gorges as the team captain.

+ he has a NTC and he won't waive it.
People on here obsess too much on salary and cap hits. If the guy is not giving the effort or is a poor example for young players, by all means, dump his ass...but to do that to Gionta because he is a 4 mil player and not a 5 mil player would be moronic.

It would send the worst possible message to the young players. Every team in the NHL has at least one, if not 3-4 players playing below their cap hit. It's a non issue as long as it's not the whole team.
