The Gomez trade was all Gauthier. He was the one in charge of scouting the Rangers in that period and he was the one who told Gainey to trade for Gomez. We all remember that offseason, where Koivu was let go and the team was looking for a #1C. (They tried with Vinny, and I'm glad THAT didn't go through... Higgins, Subban, Gorges... wow).
We got Gomez for nothing. And we hoped that he could do better with us. Like kovalev. I mean are we mad we got kovalev? like our first 80 pointer guy since Recchi ? I dont think so.
When I say nothing i mean we traded Mcdonagh...ok wow big deal, we had Markov, hammer, Gorges and eventually Gill, Spacek..
