we have a #1 centerman if he comes to camp and looks like **** we dump him in the minors and the owners lose what a million bucks and we have 5 million in cap space? There is literally no lost this isn't Sutter we won't hang on to a vet just because he is a vet ask Conroy if he is the worst player he will be cut like any other player there is no loss.
Why? Because I'm tired of this team doing bandaid fixes by signing over the hill veterans when we could be giving that ice time to younger players.
You think Gomez can come into camp and wow you? I'll save you the trouble - Gomez will never be a first line center in the NHL again. Book it. Quote me on it. His regression has been eye-popping, and there is no way he would outplay Alex Tanguay or outwork Mikael Backlund or Matt Stajan in camp.
