Yeah it doesn't seem like Gomez is a good fit there. He seems like the type of guy that needs a pure finisher, like he had with Elias in NJ. Olesz could do well in NY. I want the trade deadline to hurry the efff up.
Okay,here's my .02 cents of all the talk. As a die-hard Panther fan, I would not want to trade away Olesz just yet. I know he's been injury prone for quite some time now,but the kid shows a lot of potential when he is playing and I would not want to see the Panthers miss out on a possibly great hockey player just to dump salary. When Olesz was on his game, he could skate like the wind,had a great shot,good hands, isn't afraid to hit and I think he can give the Panthers that little extra bit of scoring they are looking for.
On Gomez, #1 I guess a stupid question, Now I know his last name is spanish,but isn't he from Alaska? Back to subject, I wouldn't mind Gomez in a Panther jersey,but I am not happy about his price. I am not even close to a Rags fan, so I haven't seen him play much,but from what everyone seems to be saying is that he is having a horrible year in NY, so maybe a change of scenery is good for him, but at what cost? I would much rather the Panthers hang on to JBo and have a healthy Olesz come back into the lineup for a playoff run,then take a chance on Gomez and his price.
