In the Gorges arbitration case, I figure if Josh gets anything under 3.1 million a season, the Canadiens as a franchise won the hearing, but if Josh is awarded more than 3.1 a season Josh won the arbitration case....
They should let him walk. He is easily overmatched when the play becomes physical. Yes he is an OK shut down defenceman when paired with Gill. Otherwise he has never brought much to the table.
Anything over 3mil is a joke, although expected with the way money has been thrown around lately.
