The Canadiens have decided to do the right thing and give Josh Gorges, one of the team’s most relied-upon blueliners, a six-year, 3.9 million per, contract. And of course our man deserves it. He’s a leader, a shot-blocker extraordinaire, is solid, tough, and dependable, and no way could we afford to lose him. We’ve got enough non-dependables at the moment.
Josh was on a one-year deal worth 2.5 million, and now his new and improved ship has finally come in.
This is great news in a season of mostly bad news. Okay, who’s next?
