Josh Gorges Top Ten NHLer in Plus/Minus!

Currently tied for 8th.

Wow! Gorges by himself makes the Rivet trade a steal, Max Pac is just absurdly good icing.

Good for him, he works his ass off and wins puck battles like no other. Just goes to show you what heart and pure determination can do for a player. Now hopefully he gets recognition around the league since he has the stats to back it up. And he's only making 1.1 million a year

23 years old to boot. The kid has his defensive game down pat which means the club has several years to try to focus on his scoring game and maybe him turning into a more rounded defender, like Andrei Markov. He meshes great with the team and I bet as long as Carey and him get along, both will be wearing the CH.

I miss Craig's feistyness and the fact that at one point Montreal had a lot of toughness on D but Gorges is a different form of tough. He's a shot blocking machine. I like that.

Gorges has been stellar. He has done it all year too and tuned it around after a rocky start with the Habs. Rivet has had good seasons, usually alternating with bad ones, but I never saw him play defensive hockey this well for so long. Rivet had way more offensive use, but was a pylon compared to Gorges. His toughness and hard shot might be missed, but we're better off with a younger, steadier guy like Gorges. Since Craig is best friends with Saku, maybe Bob will one day give him a Breezy treatment and bring him back for a bottom pairing role... hopefully with better results. But as for Gorges, he has turned the Rivet deal from a nice return into a steal. It's not absolute highway robbery considering Rivet gave the Sharks some good work, but a potential power forward scoring star and a solid defender make this one of Gainey's best (if not his best) moves.

Whatever people say, Gorges has been doing the job as 4th D, and even 2nd D when Komi was injured.

Props to the Gorges!
I'm sorry but Lapierre was the captain of what?



It's amazing how far Gorges has come. He was our 7th dman not too long ago.

He was a throw in in the trade.

Craig who?



When we will be looking back on Gainey's Gm career with the Habs, this trade will be at the top of the list. Just Wow.

I'm not sure, but some people claim he was captain of Kelowna.

The Rockets.

Think of this guys:

Markov-Komisarek
Jaybo-Gorges
Hamrlik-Brisebois/Bouillon

Brisebois plays WELL with Hamrlik on his line. To me, thats a d line up worthy of a cup.

I remember so many Sharks fans saying they won the deal just for getting rid of Gorges. I never saw him play in SJ but he was definitely bad at first with us...but he has just kept getting better and better. Really thinking of getting a Gorges jersey because I think/hope he's going to be here for a looong time.
