The difference in offense between Gomez (in a good year) and Horcoff (in a good year) isn't enough to make me want to spring for an extra $2 million cap hit, especially when you consider the non-scoring parts of the game that Horcoff does a lot better than Gomez.

As well, Gomez is primarily a playmaker (aside from his 33-goal miracle season, he's never even reached 20) and the Oilers don't need more playmakers, they need shooters.

Maybe if you bring in the right forwards to the Rangers, Gomez will rack up a lot more assists and that contract won't look so miserable. But on the Oilers, he's not going to have anybody to pass to. A setup man with nobody to set up isn't what the Oilers need.
