I like Gomez, but I agree with the posters who say he's on a downward trend. I'd say a steep trend, but can he really get much worse than last year?

I also agree that he could easily have a good year in 11-12, maybe 12-13. But that will be a blip on an otherwise downward trajectory.

Some guys' skills just give out earlier. Not everyone is Sakic or Yzerman, and let's be honest, Gomez wasn't one of those guys at the best of times.

I think we need to jettison that contract by whatever means necessary. This isn't a charity, and the Habs make enough money as an organization to eat the contract. The Habs don't owe Gomez anything. If there's opportunity we need to strike. This isn't really a young team. It's a mixed bag of youth and vets, but a couple of big guns (Richards, etc.) could make all the difference.

I would personally love to see some boldness from Habs' management for a change. I'm starting to think that winning Cups isn't a real priority for this organization.
