Pierre Gauthier announced today the signing of Josh Gorges to a six-year contract extension.

The 27-year-old defender will earn an average salary of $3.9 million per year over the six years of the deal.

Gorges, who is one of the Canadiens assistant captains, has a goal and nine assists in 39 games this season while leading the team with a +6 plus/minus differential.

Overall, this is a good signing. Gorges is a heart and soul defender who makes sound plays and blocks a ton of shots. He is also a great leader, perhaps a future captain. What do you guys think of this signing? Does it buy time for Gauthier?

I think the signing is a great one for the Habs. The going rate for most quality d-men seems to be just around 4M+. Although I'm not fond of deals much longer than 4 years. Georges will only be 33 when it ends.

Hope it helps set a ball park figure to sign Carle.....just not for as many years.
