Gonna take a shot here and say that these trade talks are based on boredom. I know that every single Devils' fan on this board wants to make this team the best team in the league. Seriously though, I don't know why Gomez is always the first guy mentioned when we talk trades. His scoring is down? Sure it is. So is about every forward on this team not named Pandolfo. If Lou does move Gomez (who makes $1 million remember), who is going to distribute the puck? We need the little guy. He skates hard, finishes his checks and does most things without complaining.

Let's not forget that he is just 24 years old and has grown up a ton the past two seasons. Until the Devils have two powerhouse lines like they had back in 2000 with the A-Line and Mogilny, Gomez is going to be a 50+ point guy. That is pretty good for this team, and at $1 million? That is darn good.

I'm not ragging, but it is getting a little old seeing Gomez on everybody's list as the first guy to go. Sorry for the rant.
