Gorges would easily be #2 in Toronto.

Well the habs are just adjusting to Emelin's injury. Doesn't stop people like you from complaining we don't have a good defense.
Oh my God...

Have you even watched Niskanen? His defensive game is much, much better than Diaz's, and he's definitely more physical.

Gorges would NOT be #2 in Toronto. Phaneuf, Franson, Gardiner and Gunnarson are all better d-men than he is. It might be debatable with Gunnarson, but that's it.

Emelin's injury made our weak defense even weaker. The one who suffered the most of his loss was, you guess it, Gorges.

When you pay 4M long-term for a d-man, you expect him to step the hell up when you need him.
