Quite interesting how the contract can alter the opinion we have on a player's performance. I understand the reasoning behind it. Gomez was virtually destroying any chances of getting better and signing UFA's.
Still, the Canadiens were the laughing stock of the NHL because Gomez earned 7 millions dollars while being unable to crack a weak lineup. He had nothing over Desharnais, Plekanec or Eller justifying his presence on the ice. Guess what? Gomez at league minimum is the same player without the big contract.
He's a nice guy, but very one dimensional. Can't believe some teams are desperate enough to grab him.
Also, Martin made his mea culpa on television about not benching Gomez. Being aware of his errors is part of being a coach, he said.
