Guy gave it his all as a Hab and you have to respect that. Really disappointed at some of the comments over the last few days.

Really good guy and leader and I'm sure he was well liked in the room.

Good luck in Buffalo!

I hated that the Habs were likely moving him, and I really dislike the trade itself. Good luck in Buffalo, Gorges. This sucks.

Guy ate rubber for us like a badass.

Sad to see him go this way.

Deserved better from the organization. Contract wasn't that bad considering what he did for the team. Can't see how we turn this into a positive. Did we really need a chemistry mix up like this after the run we had?

Hope Gorges proves to be a key piece in a Buffalo resurgence.

Love the guy, hopefully he has no hard feelings towards MTL. Good luck.

Gorges on why he nixed trade to #Leafs : “I’ve grown to hate this team” Will fit in with Sabres.

I hope no one comes here and talk **** about him.

He was not talented indeed but his effort and commitment to the team mostly compensate for that.

Thanks for your service.

He was tossed away like a day-old sandwich. Not the way to treat a class act like Gorges. I understand the logic in trading him, but don't appreciate how it was handled.

Best of luck, Josh. You were a big part of the family.

Josh Gorges makes it clear on Sportsnet he just couldn't get over MTL's bitter rivalry with TOR to agree to join the Leafs.

Too bad he had to learn that pro hockey is a BUSINESS just like any other and that heart doesnt count for much and isnt a very marketable commodity when you get older....

Good luck Josh...

Gorges to NHL Network re Leafs: "Nothing against that organization or it's players but it would be like going to play for Boston."

Absolutely a warrior and a pro. He wad limited in skill and while the way he was used at times was poor, he gave 100%. Good luck Josh!
