In the end, I think Gomez and Comrie will put up similar numbers and are close to each other in age, the difference is that Comrie makes a lot more money and is holding out for more. Also, Gomez is a known quantity in NJ, while we have no idea what Comrie would do. Because of these things, I wouldn't do a Comrie for Gomez straight up, much less Comrie and a 2nd for Gomez and Hale.
You would have to go with a general pattern when it comes to offensive players in trade. Given the same set of circumstances as Gomez, I believe that Comrie would produce better numbers. That said, I don't suspect that Mr. Comrie and Mr. Burns or Mr. Lamoriello are designed to get along.
