When Anaheim grabbed him I was distraught. Knowing nothing of Gormley at the time I spent the rest of the night complaining to any of my friends that would listen.

One thing Fowler definitely has on Gormley is mobility. Gormley is slow on his skates. There is really know sugar coating that. Luckily his positioning, vision, and puck moving are basically flawless. Really helps one forget all about that slow footedness.

Almost reminds me of Zbynek Michalek in the D zone, and Tomas Kaberle in the offensive zone, while never actually being involved in the neutral zone because he will generally just hit somebody with a long stretch pass or dish it off to somebody near by and let them lug it up ice. He and Rundblad could be incredibly dangerous together on a pp.
