I can't find it within myself to hate any Hab- but Gomez wouldn't even come close to a list of potential candidates. I'll always remember Gomez as the first guy in Chara's face after THE hit. I'll remember him for the 2009-2010 season. I'll remember him for not scoring for a whole frustrating ******* year. But I refuse to celebrate this rather ****** end to his time with the Habs. Am I happy for cap space in a year? Sure. Do I wish we had McDonagh? Sure. But do I celebrate this crappy end to the career of a player who seems as genuinely likable as any player I've ever seen in the NHL? No ****ing way.
Good perspective. Curious, are you born in 1987?
