Methot is not as effective as Gorges. He's never received accolades for playoff accomplishments.
Although Gorges got it just for the one off-season, Habs fans ragged on not having him and Markov around and feel justified that the Habs could have won the series with them and possibly Gorges alone taking Mara's or Sopel's spot away

Doubt all this stuff that Gorges is looking for 3-4 mil money. The guy had a season ending injury. Sure he's been a great addition. But he's purely defensive, a good one, but not such a great one to warrant 4 million when Gill makes almost half. BS imo.

Methot is more proven in his style of play - he is more physical which is the dimension missing in Gorges portfolio to issue him a 3.5 to 4M deal.

We DON'T need Kaberle... We have markov, Subban & Weber who can quaterback the offence.

I would give Gorges a 5 year- 10 million $ deal.
Yes, and if he balked at that I would offer same money 4 years. 2.5 per cap hit is not bad.

I'm definitely a fan of Gorges and I love what he brings to the team. But if you ask me, anything over 3 million per year is an overpayment.

For 4 mil he can go sit in another team's defensive goaler's crease. He does that quite well.

Don't quite understand why he filed for arbitration - if it would come to a hearing how would he explain his season last year?

Agreed...if it is true that he's looking for a 4M contract, I hope PG starts quietly shopping him.

And i'm a big Gorges fan

I'll see Gorges later this afternoon and I'll try to talk to him. I'll post his comments on my twitter account, at least to confirm/deny the $4M rumours.

This process has more to do with Gorges agent, than it does Josh himself...I really don't think this will go to arbitration, Gorges likes playing for the Habs too much, this is just his agent using every little edge he can...no biggie, he will be signed guys, and it will not be 4M!

Last time I read the article on Gorges going to arbitration, it did not sound like it was because of the positions the 2 parties were at on salary or anything. It sounded like he just wanted to make sure that Gorges did not lose the arbitration rights before they got a deal done with the Habs.

That's also what I had heard, and that the years and salary weren't far apart, Gorges just did was best for his own interest, you know, just in case.

I hope so, I don't want to see him leave the organization anytime soon.

Gorges is worth 2.5-3m per year max. He's not big and he doesn't get points. He has youth, positioning and heart on his side but asking to quadruple your salary is a bit farfetched.

As suspected, the $4M per season rumours were not true. Now everybody take a deep breath...

We didn’t get close to that. – Josh Gorges

Thank god. Thanks for the update, Habsterix.

Ideally, he'd sign for a touch under $3 million, but I'm not holding my breath after seeing Methot signing for 12M/4YRS.

Huge Gorges fan here!! (huge!). Would love for us to have one more Gorges, and while you're at it...also one more Subban!!

Great to hear about/read that Habsterix article (thanks Habsterix!).
Saw Gorges in person once and he seemed to be VERY down-to-earth. so happy to see fans and shook everyone's hands before going into the bus (to face Bruins a couple of years ago when we beat them). Komisarek was a major ***** (cocky/arrogant face...didn't want anything to do with any fans who were just cheering them on before they faced the Bruins...glad Komisarek - expensive AHLer - is gone).

So many NHL players are so darn greedy (ex: Souray!), I'm hoping Gorges will somehow take a 3 or 4 year contract that is not too overpaid.

I'm hoping for...$2,5mil/year for 4 years (10mil).
OR
$2,5mil to $2,95mil/year for 3 years (heck! also for 4 years).

If he wants the same as Methot just give him slightly less but one more year compared to Methot.



C'mon Gorges!! Sign before that arbitration date!!

Go Gorges Go (don't be too greedy!! all you NHLers make way too much #$^&*$% money anyways!!).


In my dreams...hopefully in reality or close to it!! (2-3+years from now!!):
Tinordi - PK Subban
Beaulieu - Subban's brother
Gorges - Subban's cousin

I did some editing...added Subban's cousin (also a dman?). But that would be more than 2-3 years!

3 Subbans on D...would be great, especially if we could get Jordan Subban (2012 or 2013 Draft?).

Meanwhile...I really hope we sign Gorges to a 3 or 4 year contract.

Gorges won't cost too much. And if offered a 4 year $10 million deal ($2.5 million per) I'm sure he and his agent will jump on it.

I expected that answer to be honest.. 4M is a little high and even he knew that.. But if he gets a similar amount to Gill per season and signs for like 4-5 years, I'll be happy for me and for him...

I'd say he has a similar impact on a team as a guy like Gill. Both are defensive minded dman with no offense, no physicality but with good leadership intangibles. One is a UFA the other isn't. But you can say that on a 3-4-5 years deal you're buying some of Gorges UFA years. They should get about the same amount of money as far as I'm concerned. Gorges doesn't deserve anywhere near 3M. If Columbus wants to be ******** it's their prerogative but we shouldn't have to be.

Honestly with the new cap hit and all Gorges is well worth 3M. I wouldn't even mind him getting 3.5 if it allows us to lock him as part of our core.
