You are judging a person's character, that you know nothing about, based on his subpar (definitely subpar!) hockey play. God damn that is hilarious in its ridiculousness. I would bet that Scott Gomez has done more for other people than you ever have or ever will!
And I mean that both for the community, charity, and for his teammates - notice young guys giving him credit all the time for helping them transition in the league, no doubt the guys like having him around and he's a good teammate.
Anyway, call me an apologist all you want, I think Gomez has played like **** and I honestly think when healthy we are close to being a better team without him in the lineup at all, but jeez people need to learn to separate a human being from the sport. It's sad, but also a perfect example of why I try not venture into any non-news thread!
