Even for $2 - $3 million, I think we could do a lot better for that money.
Almost certainly, especially if a lot of free agents hit the market. And we have to be tight with every dollar if we're a low budget team due to ownership problems again. Taking gambles on Gomez is not prudent.

Gomez said before UFA started that he would not go to a Devils rival, and then when July 1 came around, he promptly signed with the Rangers. During his first presser as a Ranger, he said something like, "I always dreamed of wearing the Blue shirt when I was a kid" or something along those lines. **** that, he deserved all the booing he got.
