I love this just from an honesty stand point on Gorges part. Can't go to Toronto because he hates them after 7 years in Montreal. From a competator stand point that's fantastic. All heart guy who loves his team. Easy to root for a guy like that. Good luck in Buffalo Josh.

He will be missed in some ways, no doubt. But I certainly won't miss him giving the puck away, chasing it in his zone for minutes on end and killing every PP chance he was on the ice for... Though that last part isn't his fault, he never should have been on the PP to begin with. No pass, no vision, no shot. Any time he has the puck is a disaster.
Couldn't agree more. He was overrated by Habs fans. A good guy, but not a big deal losing him. Much prefer the pick than Franson. Thank you Josh for saying NO to the Leafs

It's always sad to see people demeaning a player as soon as he is traded or sign elsewhere.

Gorges was a good soldier for a number of years.

Not the greatest player, but one of the best trades of the Gainey era: Rivet and a 5th-rounder for Gorges and a 1st-rounder (used to pick Pacioretty)
