Bridges are burnt. There's no way he stays at this point.

He makes more than Gorges...I would be beyond shocked if he was involved. 4 years left at 5.25 mil and injury prone...HUGE pass.

Brendan Shanahan continues to try and encourage Josh Gorges to accept trade to the Maple Leafs. So far, no luck, but still a chance.

If the rumour was true;

Pacioretty - Desharnais - Lupul
Galchenyuk - Plekanec - Gallagher
Bourque - Eller - Parenteau

Looks pretty awesome..

Lupul's contract is pretty high risk though...

Or maybe the return is that good that Bergevin wants to force Gorges into this trade. Accept this trade or you'll might end up where you never want to play.

True, but would you want to stay after you've been told to leave a couple of times? I mean they've asked him to waive what twice, they want you gone, just turn the page and move on

Exactly.
The return from Toronto has to be significant if MB is forcing Gorges' hand with the possibility of being put on waivers if he doesn't accept.

This whole situation doesn't make sense if Franson is what the Leafs are offering.

Yeah he said he was "deeply disturbed" on ESPN. He's acting like he's Chelios or something. He's a top 5 D. Hahaha.

Is Garrison an "upgrade"? That's debatable..but they tried to trade for him.

If Gorges is put on waivers, then what return do we get?

Or the Canadiens are so desperate to be free of his 3.9m cap hit (for whatever reason) that they're willing to lose him for absolutely nothing instead of being stuck with it.

I have a hunch my scenario is the more likely one.

How dare a hockey player speak his mind and shows emotion!

Hockey fans really love it when hockey players are boring right? ''Ya know its hard, but its part of the game. I'm ready for a new challenge and can't wait to see my new teammates. Team X has such great history and fans, I'll love it there.'' - there just imagine Gorges copy pasted that sentence.

Imagine playing on the Habs and getting traded. Gorges is a much greater canadiens fans than any of us here, he bled for that team. Trades happen, he's not the first nor the last, but he's 100% allowed to speak his mind and be honest. I respect that.

Say someone kicks you in the balls, are you going to calmly state that suffering happens, and that you humbly accept your fate knowing people are getting tortured daily? No you'll scream that it hurts as ****.

These guys are people too. His planned future just changed, he has to move his family, make new friends, lose the illusion he had that he was a Habs for life and in other words basically change his whole world. A lot of time the players that are traded are at the end of their contracts or upcoming UFAs. Gorges believed he was safe because he had a long term contract, and a NTC. Thats why he's disturbed, not because he thinks he's better than he his.

Garrison for Gorges, for me anyways I'd call that an upgrade

All you have to do is pay attention to Josh over the years and this is not shocking at all. He is always talking in the media and views himself as bigger than what he really is. I'm glad he will be moved. It disturbed me how so many people wanted him to be the next Captain. No bloody way.
