I remember that. I had no clue how good he was because I had not seen him play but I remember the opinions weren't glowing on him back in the summer of 09.

Of course that doesn't excuse trading a 1st round prospect for such a horrible contract as Gomez when it's actually the rangers who should have been compensating us for giving them the room to sign Gaborik.
