His comments and demeanor regarding Subban during the holdout were annoying to say the least. That said a lot more about him than any of this rah-rah stuff he says in the lockerroom. To me he displayed a serious lack of leadership there.

People talk about him being the next captain but based on his play and what I've seen, I don't see him as a good choice.
Same, I see Gorges as a guy who tries really hard to be a leader, but isn't actually viewed as such by his teammates. It also looks like no one cares when he does his speeches, tbh
