Never heard this one before. Could you provide a link?

Gorges was going to become UFA, if we didn't sign him long term we risked losing him.

Sure he inquired on Doan, but got out of the race fairly quickly too.
What a load BS. He changed the coaching staff and brought in some bottom 6 guys. Does he get Ryder if Gauthier doesn't sign cole as a UFA first? He was in on Doan for the whole time and now he's getting credit for inviting a top-3 pick and a guy who was one of the last cuts the year before to camp. Please.
