Sharks sign Gomez to 1 year $700k deal (Burns to IR to make roster spot)

Quote:

The San Jose Sharks have tendered an offer to unrestricted free agent Scott Gomez, according to the Ottawa Sun.
Gomez was placed on waivers by the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday, who will be held accountable for his $7.3 million salary.
The forward had a disappointing 2011-2012 season with Montreal, scoring two goals with nine assists in 38 games.
Gomez, who is 33, was a solid player for the Devils and Rangers for the first nine years of his career. He recorded 33 goals and 51 assists with the Devils during the 2005-2006 season.
General manager Doug Wilson has been quoted as saying that the Sharks would not be active in the free agent market before the start of the regular season on Sunday, but it appears like hes making an exception for Gomez.
Please....DW....no.....

Why? It's a low risk signing. One year to add some depth to the bottom lines? Why not?

If he helps create a 3rd scoring line for cheap, wonderful.

Wasn't he injured or playing with an injury?

Im loving this, Gomez > Handzus. If you read any of the FTF threads about why Gomez should be signed, they made a lot of sense. Gomez has much better playmaking ability than Handzus, they probably have the same amount of speed, but its his puck possession game that lets the play of the puck in the opponents end of the ice is what intrigues me.

Let me ask you this, who would you rather have center your 3rd line in the playoffs Handzus or Gomez? Gomez has always performed well in the playoffs, his last two appearance he put up 18 pts in 26 games. Not too shabby, he will bounce back with whoever he plays with this year.

With the Sharks depleted on defense, their top 9 guys will have to outscore their opponents this season.

Good move if its cheap and 1 year.

Its not going to matter if he's cheap, teams will have a hard time making a in season trade. Sharks have the space to fill their need.

If there's multiple teams after him he won't choose the Sharks. If the Sharks are the only ones after him then DW will bid against himself and give him a 1 year 2.5 mill contract because he's a terrible negotiator.

If they do sign him, it better be less than $1M and only for one year. Anything more than that is an overpayment in my opinion. I think Redden only got $800K for one year.

Need him to pass, not score. Wingels or Galiardi can handle the scoring.

Do you have a better option?

Redden's been out of the NHL for two and a half years so that's not a good comparison.

If it's a 1 year deal, don't really care what he signs for...the Sharks have the cap space to use.

If there's truth to the Devils being interested I would think he might go there, though San Jose would be a great place for him to prove he can still play and earn another contract.

Nighthock 01-18-2013 05:24 PM

1 year 800k? Why not?

corbanSOG 01-18-2013 05:30 PM

Like others have said, this could be a great low-risk 3rd line pickup if the deal is 1 year and under $1mil. The Sharks' acknowledged biggest weakness is scoring depth, and if Gomez can be even a shadow of his former self, he can be an asset.

sjshark91 01-18-2013 05:31 PM

If Wade Redden is going to play top 4 minutes for the Blues and everyone gets a Jimmy then why is this a bad move for 1 year when SJ has 0 offensive depth?

Maybe Larry Robinson can talk him in to going to the Sharks

Maybe - Gomez loved Robinson.

Tkachuk4MVP 01-18-2013 05:33 PM

I like this idea a lot. I think most Sharks fans would acknowledge that letting Wellwood go was a huge mistake, and Gomez could effectively fille that void at a similar price.

ramstoria 01-18-2013 05:33 PM

1 year $1m would be a fantastic deal. The only downside I can see to it is if he has a fantastic season (relatively speaking), we probably couldn't resign him. Honestly, I don't think I'd be mad if it was a 2 year deal, so long as it's cheap like 1.5m or 2m. We need solid depth, been a big problem the last two years.

In all seriousness I would be fine with Gomez reuniting with Robinson for less than $1mil. He played very well for him, and even at this stage in his career is better than many 3rd/4th liners out there.

rangerssharks414 01-18-2013 05:41 PM

Watch, they do sign Gomez, but for two years, $5M and a NMC. :sarcasm:
