SIGN ME UP FOR GOMEZ!!!).
You're mistaken, i do not want Snow to pick up Gomez. I'm just saying if Garth has no luck on the trade front trying to acquire a #2c and he sees Gomez can be had for cheap he'll say why not? A la Finley and Hickey signings as of late; it's a low risk high reward move imo. If he regroups on a team like us with much less media hype than MTL and catches fire great, if he fails yo perform can his ass. It's only a.48 game season as well, wouldn't be the worst idea. Ideally I'd much rather a better player, but he could turn into Grabner 2.0
