Josh Gorges (Possibly being traded some time soon)

So what do you guys think of the play of Gorges?

Does he merit his ice time / luxury playing alongside PK?

HE ALLOWS PK TO PLAY HIS GAME WITH NO WORRIES--Why would you even bring this up?

Funny enough, I think you came closer to getting it right.

Easiest name on the team to spell, nobody gets it right.

Gorges is no Weaver, who is totally awesome.

That was my next thought. At least spell his name right.

And as far as Weaver--he is playing GREAT in his Role--just like Gorges

him and pk have been incredible. they're chemistry in their own zone is why pk can do what he does, and pk would even admit to that.

If there's one time, just ONE time, to spell it right, it might be if you start a thread that's simply his name for the title.

Gorges has raised him game quite a bit during these PO (like most of this team). He deserves praise for it.

I think he's been playing great. Steady and reliable. His smart plays sometimes frustrate me in the regular season (dump it in the corner instead of shooting on net) but these small plays are key in the playoffs. No complaints here.

Gorges is doing great, he's the only defenseman on the team I trust implicitly in our own zone. Having him back is really a key to Subban's revival IMHO (both in terms of his on-ice contribution, and probably also in terms of giving the doubting Thomas Therrien a little extra confidence in letting Subban play, at least at first).

He's awful with the puck on his stick in the offensive zone, of course, always will be, but that's immaterial.

Jokes aside, I really think he's truly overrated who has strong heart but an aging, soft, declining body.

In my eyes he's a shadow of his old self. I hope I'm not proven right anytime soon, because with the amount of ice time he gets, that can be the nail in the coffin.

We don't notice him on the ice which means he doesn't make mistakes.

If we were down 2-1 in the series and Gorges plays the same game he's played thus far, people would find faults.

All is rosey in habs land.

Are you the guy that create a Gorges every couple week when he does something wrong...
Fact every player has flaws!
As for Gorges he knows his role and is very important to the balance of our team. To tell you the truth, I just don't get the hate...

I'll tell you why I hate.

He's 3rd pairing caliber logging 25 minutes playing with an elite franchise d-man.

He's a shot blocker and nothing more. He's a poor man's Weaver.

I don't really notice him. Which is good I guess. To me he's the definition of an average NHL defenseman in pretty much all respects, though I guess he's above average when it comes to shot blocking. A useful guy to have as the safe lesser partner of a top defensive pairing.
