The Cataractes traded a player and 6 draft picks to bring Gormley in because they wanted the cup. He played very well and their gamble paid off. This guy may be as good as OEL. Our defense is really set for the future.Anyway, he and his team won the cup so a big congratulations to all of them.
Gormley is considered by many to be the best Canadian defense-man not in the NHL. He may prove to be the best in his draft class in time. Good drafting and free agent signings is how teams like Detroit build perennial winners. Maybe we will join that class.
The guys is so smooth and calm out there on the ice. Feels like watching a young Suter. I wouldn't say he's the fastest guy but with his solid positioning you don't really need to be. Aucoin is a very good example of that. The best part of his game is his active stick checking. Reminds me of a lot of Michalek in that aspect.
