In the future I think he'll end up being a bit more of a playmaker than scorer on ES but be mostly a goal scorer on the powerplay as the primary net presence.
He knows how to use his size really effectively at the NHL level. I really hope he recovered perfectly *fingers crossed* I can't believe we essentially got Pacioretty and Gorges for Rivet In my eyes that alone cancels out the Gomez deal and if Gomer has a come back year having a strong supporting cast... it's going to be an exciting year a lot of question marks, a lot of youth. Looking back that trade in my eyes could have been the difference between SJ winning and not winning the cup last year Gotta love the what ifs.
