I think you're the one who's new to hockey if you don't understand the connotations that second half bring when they are associated with Scott Gomez. It isn't that he becomes great in the second half, it's that he plays like garbage in the first half. He did that a number of seasons in New Jersey.

Don't tell me that I don't know what I'm talking about. I love watching hockey, whether it is the Rangers or it isn't. I've seen my fair share of Devil games over the years. I know how Gomez plays. This is business as usual for Gomer.
