Do you want him with Kristo, Gallagher, Tinordi, Beaulieu etc..
While the guy might not be the devil reincarnated, I ALSO believe it's something they have in mind. If Gomez doesn't like his job and he's in the NHL, I can't believe he'll love it more in Hamilton, traveling on a bus. So by himself, it is possible he decides to go in Europe. But again, it's all about what image the new management wants to have. In the old days, we've fired an assistant coach for nothing. We've fired a tough guy, we've traded a player between the 2nd and the 3rd, we've hired an unilingual coach and then said we were sorry to have done it....this organization was garbage X1000 for us and everybody else. Somehow, it's possible that this new organization feels that they have no choice but to make this team look like they are assuming their mistakes. Could be a step in the right direction as far as perception is concerned. We might not know this but it's possible that we have a LOT to do in that regards. Based on our lack of success, based on what happened especially last year, based on the fact that nobody knows what this new organization is all about. On the other end, it's also possible that if everybody bashes this "move", that it will make other teams and players say that it didn't improve...Again, they were put in a lose-lose situation.
