I don't think Lou has a grudge. If he don't want Gomez then it simply comes down to not needing his services right now. Same thing he said for Sykora. It's well known that Lou tried to bring Bobby Holik back in 2005 after the lockout ended. Holik was bought out by the Rangers with a few years left on that monster contract Sather gave him by leaving us for them.
Holik chose the Thrashers, but admitted he did talk to the Devils and loved playing for Larry Robinson. He said he decided to play for the Thrashers cause he liked Hartley (Though I'm not sure he did when he got canned) He also said he liked the idea of getting to play with Kovy, and other young players they had. He left Atlanta, and came back to center our 4th line in 2008 when he became a UFA again.
