Scott Gomez keeps us afloat. Nothing more. Nothing less. We are on pretty much even ground now as we were at the end of the season with guys like Koivu and Tanguay.

We've locked up 7th-12th place in the East for the next 5 years IMO. You can't pay a guy like that the amount he's getting and expect to be a powerhouse.
