If we get a guy like gomez, then someone like chimera or horcoff is denied top 6 minutes. This stunts their development without a lot of gain. How many extra goals would we score if we had gomez between smyth and hemsky instead of horcoff? Probably less than 20. So the return is just 20 goals.

IMO, lowe should be looking at prospects. Hamhuis, woywitka, suter etc

I agree we need to have a D-man coming back in any comrie trade. My 1st choice would be a player we could add to the lineup right now, but if we got someone who could step in after th lockout and play a top 4 role i would be ok with that too.
