Whereas the best shutdown pairing the Habs have had in the last 5 years saw Gorges playing on the right side of Hal Gill.
Yup, he played mainly RD in the KHL, a lot of European guys play their offside/offwing.

Also not sure how much you actually watched him play LD since in his whole time in Mtl he has only played 4-5 games when he was paired with Daiz, he than played the rest of the year on RD with Kaberle playing LD.
