I'm not going to disagree...

But people need to remember, Gomez played under some pretty stiffling systems in the past -- One being Pat Burns and the other being Claude Julien.

Julien's system in New Jersey was probably the most restrait of offense I have ever seen as a Devil fan in over 25 years of following that team....Gomez career has pretty much been consistant over mutlipe systems and coaches with the exception of one big year(EDIT: A CONTRACT YEAR) where chemistry between Elias and Gionta was just incredible (And that was coached by half by Robinson and half by Lou).

What I'm saying is; I don't think that 7.4M Cap hit can be justifiable for what you will get with Gomez.

Last Edit: Don't miss understand me though, I would love to have Gomez back in New Jersey. I would just like to pay him 5 or less
