Josh Gorges was traded from the Canadiens to the Sabres for a second-round pick in 2016.

Gorges is an underrated rearguard who might have a larger role in Buffalo than he had in Montreal. That said, Gorges is a last-round type of fantrasy pick.

Josh Gorges was surprised to find out that Montreal wants to trade him.

Gorges has a modified no-trade clause and he reportedly used it to veto a potential deal to Toronto. Although he didn't confirm that specifically, he did confirm that the Canadiens called him to ask him to waive his no-trade clause and clearly he didn't do that. He has, however, added "a couple" Canadian teams to his list of teams he's willing to go to. Previously the list include 15 American-based clubs.

However, Gorges would have to waive his modified no-trade clause to accept a trade to the Leafs. If he does then it's believed that a roster player from the Leafs would go back to the Canadiens in return, according to TSN's Bob McKenzie.
