Haha, indeed, didn't bother to prorate all those numbers. I'll let you all do the math, too confusing for my poor little brain.

Anyway, I don't quite understand the Gomez hate at $ 2 to $ 3 M / per 82 game season. He doesn't have a bad locker room reputation, he's got playoff experience, and other than 2 declining years in a toxic environment, her's always been a 60 point guy. All we need from him is 40 to 50 points and everyone would be happy. He's only 33, and I bet he's got something to prove. We really could be a perfect fit for him to be that decent second line center he used to be, with adjusted expectations.

Plus, he's a UFA and the short season means we're only taking half the risk. This is a PERFECT low-risk, high-reward scenario. I mean, really, what's the worst that could happen? He sucks and gets benched, and we waste $ 1 to 1.5 M? Big deal.
