Josh Gorges to Pittsburgh

Makes $3.9 mil annually. Just resigned with MTL for 6 years last season. The Pens need to solidify their D-corps. Right fit for Pittsburgh? What would MTL want back?

He's the right fit for every team in the league, including Montreal, which is why they are not trading him.

He'll be named captain soon so he won't be traded.

Gorges is the right fit on ANY team. Hes worth more to the Habs than teams are willing to pay.

I was just going to add that but you already did that so thank you. Yeah 20 1st rounders plus Malkin and Crosby cause in return your getting a better player who is also a better leader.

Great contribution to the thread. Is there a point you are trying to make or is writing nonsense on message boards a hobby of yours?

Question ... do you just pull a name out without seeing their value to their own team? Georges is the top defensemen there; a pretty decent cap hit and isn't going anywhere. Not trying to start anything. I like him as a player, but its very evident he isn't going anywhere unless Crosby or Malkin or Neal are heading back. We don't have anything Montreal wants absent those players.

Why not try someone who could be on the move, not someone there is little to no chance that he is on the move?

Why ask for a player when he's CLEARLY not going to be traded?

It's like saying to the Penguins, what will it cost for Letang.

Yup. He's Not moving, hopefully a Hab for life, he plays the game the right way and is a great leader on the team.

Likely cost you Kris Letang, because Montreal sure wouldn't move this guy for cheap

Right now the Habs basically have nobody who could come in and replace him and the role he brings. Really can't see a viable trade with the pens. Now if the habs are out of it at the deadline, a trade for young guys or close to NHLers might work.

not being dealt. heart and soul guy who loves playing here - just signed long deal. leading nhl shot-blocker. young. i wish teams would stop offering young D back. habs are LOADED @ D. ellis, beaulieu, tinordi, subban etc...

if he were dealt it would be for a quality forward. habs may have to add but it would be for an established winger with size who can score

I don't think the pens should go after gorges, he's a great guy, he pkay good defensively but 3,9m/year is a lil too much for a 4/5 dman.

I'm curious what you think about Orpik's $3.75m/year contract, because IMO those players have comparable values to their respective teams.
