And when will Gionta be gone? As he requested a trade? If anything given how the org view these guys in term of importance, Gorges will leave before Gio as he only got a one year contract.

What makes you think they're so down on Gorges? I mean, they let him take a whole year off, when he said he could have played. If anything, that just goes to show that the team views him as an asset. If they didn't want him, they would have played him and let him go to another team with his bum knee.

Why jerk him around with a one year deal? Lock him up for good, jeez.

At one point, they gave pleks a one year contract too. Your argument doesn't hold up.

It should be PK....he should be the captain. PK will be entering his prime when Gionta contract expires in 2014 and this is assuming Gionta doesn't resign

There are 2 bigger fish to deal with. Both Subban and Price are RFAs. I'm sure Gorges understands the difficulties of the cap era. Aint personal, it's business.

We probably shouldn't have snubbed him on an extension, then.

just embrace it. Never thought of a gionta extension, but yeah, if that were to happen he probably won't get it. I think gorges will be here for a while, unless he wants out. The guy is cheap for what he brings. As for subban, no, not until he does some major maturing, but I don't see it in his character.

That's an assessment to be made at the end of this season.

Sadly, it wouldn't shock me if we lose him. We can only speculate but those negotiations didn't seem too friendly.

Gionta will be our captain for the next decade. He will retire a Hab, and his number will be raised to the rafters after he captains our team to our 25th and 26th championships.

At first, I tought so aswell, but now I don't. I don't he'll ever be more than a assistant, which is good. If you ask me, Patches is in the lead by example mold. Just like Gionta.

He should have been named captain 2 years ago, IMO.

Eller should be captain. It's been too long since we had a hard working Scandinavian as captain.
