Good luck to him and San Jose.

Riseonfire 01-20-2013 11:09 AM

If he's expected to play 2C duties then SJ will be disappointed. 3C and they could have a fair deal.

GetThePuckOut 01-20-2013 11:10 AM

Nice, should be good for about 5 points.

Analyzer* 01-20-2013 11:10 AM

Great teammate, extremely hilarious guy, but as a hockey player he sucks.

His passing is still NHL material, but nothing else his. As a matter of fact, his shot is borderline beer hockey league. Never seen anything so slow... Well, Georges Laraque.

Prairie Habs 01-20-2013 11:10 AM

Good for him. Is this to play 3C or wing? I know SJ has been after speedy wingers and I have no clue what their bottom six looks like.

Tawnos 01-20-2013 11:10 AM

Good for Gomez. Happy for him.

And as a Rangers fan, I'm glad both he and Redden are in the Western Conference this season :laugh:

Nemeth 01-20-2013 11:11 AM

good signing for a Dallas fan :handclap:

He still carries the puck and gains the zone very well, something we were sadly lacking last night without him and Subban (not that I thought we should keep him or anything, just an observation).

i hope he is better than Handzuš

fallsviewafro* 01-20-2013 11:13 AM

where is the confirmed signing or link

Dark Knight 01-20-2013 11:14 AM

If I'm Todd McLellan, I bring out all his tapes from his Jersey days and show him exactly how his game changed. He was a beast with New Jersey and a guy I really wanted Toronto to sign in his free agency but we dodged a bullet there. But if there was always a sucker out there to give us a Ryan MacDonagh, I would have still loved to sign him.

36 point comeback season.
Book it.

68 01-20-2013 11:15 AM

Good for Scotty and SJ. I just hope it's for the league minimum, he doesn't deserve more money.

capitalsrock 01-20-2013 11:21 AM

Who gets #3C? Gomez or Handzus?

Andy 01-20-2013 11:23 AM

Darren Dreger ‏@DarrenDreger
As per @tsnjfranklin, Gomez is in Calgary with the Sharks. As of late this am, no signed contract. Headed in that direction

No way, that's 0.75 points per game. Not a lot of players will even be able to put up 36.

fahad203 01-20-2013 11:25 AM

Sorry guys, I thought I read his signing is confirmed.

I don't have any links. I saw it on tv while watching sportscentre.

The Red Line 01-20-2013 11:26 AM

Hilarious if true.

probably whoever does better early. Handzus was terrible last year for personal reasons (which might have affected him physically too) but apparently he's like a new man this year. Cautiously optimistic, and he's still one of the slower players on the roster, but I'm not going to write him off like some others already are.

jumptheshark 01-20-2013 11:30 AM

hope he lights it up

Leaf Rocket 01-20-2013 11:30 AM

can't believe how his game has gone down from his devil days. Regardless let's hope he plays well, now that he isn't a habs :P

Rickety Cricket 01-20-2013 11:43 AM

He'll be a 3C/4C, the deal is rumored to be 700K, and if he sucks the Sharks have replacements. They're not expecting a whole lot out of him.

CN_paladin 01-20-2013 11:45 AM

Gomez' only useful skill left is to carry the buck through the neutral zone into the offensive zone. Then he'd suddenly turn absolutely useless and turn the puck over 4 times out of 5.

Zoombie 01-20-2013 11:52 AM

Anyone know if he will dress tonight against Calgary?
