Gomez to Vancouver(e4)

http://www.hockeybuzz.com/blog.php?post_id=16541

Quote:
Just a Quick Hit for your Friday Night because this news is big and its from someone who VERY much is in the know in this situation....While it is still uncertain as to whether or not Sundin is going to play, I am told by my source the following...

"We are hearing that the Rangers will sign Mats and deal Gomez."

This source is a source I very much trust. Of course Mats still has to come to play.

Following this lead was fascinating tonight because it opened up some serious other sources who had this information "off the record" until I presented them with this.

One of my sources then proceeded to tell me that the Vancouver Canucks have "HUGE Interest in Scotty Gomez..."
this guys is always good for a laugh or two, but hes really starting to annoy me on a whole new level.

What would Vancouver give the Rangers for Gomez? I'm assuming they don't want to trade Edler or Schneider (which the NYR don't need anyways) so what else can they give?

this is such an asinine rumor. i can totally see mats becoming a ranger, but i see no chance in hell of gomez being dealt. none whatsoever. the rangers are built to be a north-south, speedy team and gomez is the personification of that style.

i've said it on the nyr board numerous times. the only reasonable cap clearing scenario is as follows:

the rangers have about 2 mil in cap space, trade prucha to make it 3.6, keep voros or rissmiler off of the big club to make it 4.6. once the cba is renewed for next season, a 4.6 base plus 2-3 in reasonably attainable incentives should be enough money.

maybe not but he'll replace the goal scoring NY lost when they lost Shanny and Jagr better than Gomez could I think.

I'm pretty curious what they'd get back though. Probably some defensive help a future with Staal and Edler/Bieksa would be nice for them.

Really? Gomez is the personification of a north-south speed game?

I can't really say I understand this either. Gomez is still pretty young and I think can put up close to Sundins numbers. Unless the Rangers sign him to a 1 year deal and go for a big name FA next year, this doesn't really make sense.

How isn't he?

It's his specialty. Go up and down the ice at blazing speed.

If there's anyone I think of when I think of the North-South game, it's Gomez.

Odds on this actually happening?

I'd say about 30%

Sign Sundin for 2 years.

Trade Gomez for a good return that will help you get to the next level.

And get rid of a possible cap management problem for the Rangers in about 2 years with the Zherdev, Staal, Cerepanov, Lundqvist etc contracts.

I don't think the Rangers can lose on this apart from possible locker room and chamestry problem because of alot of core players changed.

Very generous.

Given the fact that it's eklund, I'll say 1.2% chance of it happening.

So the OP annoys you, yet you decide to bump this thread so...

On topic, I like this approach from the Rangers POV. Get a year of Gomez' prime, ship him off for some futures, and get a (pretty much) guaranteed star quality year out of Sundin. All while clearing cap space in a year or two to resign Staal, Cherepanov, Anisimov, etc. What's the downside? Losing Gomez during his decline. Sounds like smart business to me.

Hodgson and a 1st for Gomez? That's a deal that I MAY think about.

Rangers would want Kesler out of the deal. But this would never happen because Eklund smokes in the shower way too much.
