What was that? I remember the Devils had interest but I don't remember seeing any proposals.

If we get Gomez, it's more of a low-risk why not type signing. You give him third line minutes, and you basically tell him, you impress you earn an extension, if you play terribly, your career is over. He seems like the player that would mesh pretty well with Kovalchuk, and honestly, we haven't really had anyone that has. Some have played well but they've never meshed the way Parise-Zajac or Elias-Arnott-Sykora etc. have. Once Kovalchuk gets a Devils player like that, he'd be unbelievably good.

Gomez would likely come here on a deal less than 2 million, might even be under 1 million. I would definitely think he should warrant a training camp invite in the way Sykora did.
