Now I like Gorges. I respect not playing for a rival.

But man, oh man. Even the most homerish bros would admit the Leafs are in a little better shape to compete than the Sabres.

Buffalo has a brighter future than Toronto anyways. Both aren't winning the cup within 3 years.

How long did it take for Chicago and Pittsburgh to turn around after their big drafts? If Buffalo gets Eichel or McDavid next year, they'll be a playoff team a year or two after with all the experience/development of Risto, Myers, Girgs, Grigs, Reinhart, etc.

A few years of low expectations, little media assault, and then the chance to be part of one of the up and coming powerhouses? I can see why he chose Buffalo over Toronto.

Bergevin is intriguing me. Gorges was a great leader but overpaid. He blocks shots and he's not afraid to take a hit in order to make a play. He doesn't have much offense and he's not the type to carry the puck. Pure defensive guy.

What's next, Bergy? Love it so far.

Gorges is one of the best leaders in the game and Ehrhoff was sulking around last year and could not be traded without risk. We need some character in our locker room.

VERY pleased as a Sabres fan.

Only if your goalie is good at stopping deflected shots. Gorges love to go down and tip pucks into his own net.
