I didn't know Oduya was a UFA. I think he's awesome and would love to have him on the Panthers, but I've got a feeling if he's a UFA he's gonna be getting a fat raise. We are pretty close to the cap as it is.

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.
Gomez is actually living up to his stats. I think I saw it on NHL on the Fly last night. They showed his season points average and he's right where he usually is. Its just that he comes with a $7mil pricetag. If he was making $1 mil, fans would be trying to grab him in a heartbeat. I hope we get someone to help our offense. I'm crossing my fingers for Cogliano or Vermette to be in a Panthers uniform come Mar. 5th.
