Obviously reading and writing aren't your forte, thanks for your attempt to contribute though.

Also, any sane fan will not set the absolute minimal standard for gomez's production next year to more than his career average. Any sane fan will overlook the salary bcuz they know, not in amillion year, will gomez come close to leaving up to it.
Youre not a sane fan, at least not with gomez. You are so full of hate and bitterness that you are unable to even acknowledge the slightest bit of encouraging sign. Instead you go on a rampage. Ya, real sane!
I brought up his salary once and despite YOUR better judgement it does factor into things and as much as his salary has become a tool for Gomez-paladins to say "you only hate him for his salary" it is still a detriment to the team.
Gomez's career average is one of under-achieving; two years with the Rangers and two years with the Habs. And I don't have a "minimum" with Gomez, I have no expectations whatsoever because he's been disappointing everybody for 4 years straight now.
He says he's been doing better and wants to atone for last season - what catches me is that he did not bother to atone for anything during the last two seasons, not even 3/4ths of the way through last season when it was evident that he was at fault, why believe he'll behave differently now? - so maybe he'll do better. Maybe he won't. Maybe he'll fundamentally change his game. But probably not.
Sanity and annoyance are not exclusive. In fact, more able, patient, smarter fans would be even more annoyed to see such a fickle, stupid, silly fanbase embarrass themselves after every incident and every preseason game. I used to be like that, I flipped a lit after every non-move by Gainey/Julien/Carbo and then I wizened up and now it's annoying to see the rest of the board keep being so childish. The Halak/Price post-playoff trade fiasco really opened my eyes - you can't look at things short-term and expect to seem like anything other than stupid. Halak had no longevity, he was burnt out during the Philly series and even before then he had 3 really bad games to counter-act his 3 excellent games - it was plain to see but 70% of the fans refused to acknowledge it.
Same goes for Gomez. Don't count your chickens before they hatch, especially when the eggs have been rotten for 4 straight years now.
tl;dr - Gomez has none NOTHING so claiming that he's accomplishing something is both stupid and counter-productive.
edit: this is the same fickle, silly fanbase that gives the entire fanbase a terrible name on HFboards like in the Malone thread. And hateful is the wrong word, annoyed/irritated/vexed would be closer to the truth. I don't hate Gomez, I don't know him but he seems like a nice guy.
