Gionta will be fine.
Spoken like a player. I'm pretty sure Gomer is out of shape. If you played, you know. You need the jump. You need to beat guys with speed. Offense is beating guys with speed. Acceleration especially.

Gomer needs to shave 10 or 15, I'm sure of it. If he does not, he's coasting guys.

We'll see, but I'm not sure I'd give a crap if I was him. Why bother? 2 more years, retire at 35, fishing boat in the Barbados with my buddies, for the rest of my life. I won a cup too, so what's left?

Gomer might become the prime example of big money just ruining a player. Just ruined him I think, and I partly understand that.
