Gorges was a warrior.

A untalented overrated warrior.

It's not even Buffalo's 2nd rounder in 2016, it's Minny's...
Wonderful....I feel like I've just been kicked in the nads twice.

LOL this was a bad idea even if the return was for something better from Toronto. Gorges shouldn't be the odd man out if we're looking to clear cap space. This isn't going to fare well in the locker room I'm afraid.

Clearly MB is up to something and will replace Georges with an upgrade. This is a salary dump, nothing more.

After Gorges threw the Habs under the bus? Who wants a player who shows such insubordination?

Bergevin is obviously on to something. You don't just trade a good roster player for a 2nd round pick without doing something big.

I don't mind, gives us more options. That cap space will be absolutely invaluable next season. At least we got SOMETHING.

A 2nd is great (even if in 2016!). Gorges was overpaid. A Swiss army knife type but that has negative offensive skills and without the body to play physical. A mistake was made when he got his last contract.

Geez why the hate? Never seen a player that loved to play for the Habs so much and being nothing less than a warrior getting so much hate. ****ing ridiculous.

Curious to see what TOR offer was, obviously it was better than that

man oh man did Gorges whining cost us . . .

As opposed to before, now I do hope he is truly loudly and rudely boo'ed on all of his returns. I had no problem with his exercising his NTC rights, but to leak it to the media and lower his value because his feelings were hurt? ****** U and enjoy playing in the craphole.

I suspect Bergevin has a D locked up.

Bergevin is ruthless. Don't want to waive your NTC? Enjoy rebuilding in Buffalo.

Well he has a plan, and Gorges isn't a part of it. I wouldn't be surprised if Buffalo flipped Gorges to get some more picks and continue the tanking.

Also, when i first starting hearing the Gorges rumour, I started thinking that a guy who plays the way he does, his body might no longer be effective this or next year. Our organization might know something about the state of his foot that took a beating last year

Love Gorges character, but he's not worth 4 million.

What did you think he was worth? Kadri? A first rounder?

Great deal by Bergy!
This was a desperation deal, after a much-better deal with Toronto was shot down. You don't celebrate when you're backed into a corner.

Doesnt surprise me that people are *****ing about this deal. The guy is overpaid...a nice guy but overpaid...and didn't even bring anything especial. He should be a bottom pairing D on most teams. Well maybe top pair on Buffalo or Toronto! Bye Bye!
