I would. Dude is still an absolute gamer. At 32 he has a couple of decent years of hockey in him left too. Another veteran presence to throw on top of guys like Richards and Rupp who have went the distance in the playoffs? It's not like Gomez was terrible in his tenure in New York. The only thing bad about Gomez in New York was his contract. Take that off the table? And I'd bring him back. Give him a speedy winger like Hagelin to grind in the corners and he'd do work.

I think people will be surprised, if the amnesty buyouts take effect and Gomez becomes a free agent, what kind of market he'll be looking at.

Rangers become one of, if not the deepest teams down the middle in the NHL. Not to mention it's another playmaking center that Stepan can learn from.

Richards > Stepan > Gomez > Boyle

Hell yeah.
