As much as we'll probably take a hit in terms of cap hit after 13-14, it's worth it if PK reached full potential as a perennial top 5 NHL d-man.
Not sure how that relates to Gorges? Gorges was an established NHL veteran in his prime who was headed to UFA. I'd rather have him signed for 4 or 5 years instead of 6 but sub 4 mil cap hit for a top 4 d-man is a good deal.
That was not what I asked in the slightest. I asked if MB signed him to the contract, and if people believe he did so in the context of leadership and character? Because if he did it would make him a hypocrite for the comments he made about not signing PK because he didn't know what he was like in the room.
