Far less of a gamble if you get his name on a contract and likely that at the end of a 5 or a 6 year contract he is still a good player with a couple or three good years still in the tank--which is a worry I have about giving Drury a very long contract--3 or 4 years maybe but what will Chris be like when he's 35 or 36? As John the Flyer fan says and I agree with him the Rangers were only a hole or two away from going to the finals. I for one would rather the Rangers target Gomez than p*ss away next year by gambling on whether Forsberg can hold up.
Here's what will happen if the Rangers go hard after Gomez.
He will string them along untill all the other good players are gone and than he will sign somewhere else. Anywhere else.
Just like a good Devil should.
YES THATS JUST AN OPINION
Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man
