Based on age and where they fit into a team? of course it is.

i never said he was a downgrade, but i'd rather keep Gomez for 6 years then Sundin for 1-2. He was the best player on the team, save Lundqvist last season.

yes the canucks should trade for him rather then wasting 10 mil on a skilled...but old and unmotivated "quick-fix"

so a consistent 30s goal scorer is a sniper?

Gomez is 10 years younger. He had 70 pts as opposed to Sundin's 78.

He's a better playmaker than Sundin and also has Cup experience.

Short Term - Sundin.

Long Term - Gomez

1 i think is speculation
2 is a rumour
3 is he talked to a player
4 is he talked with a general manager

Im not sure if those are right though, but the guy puts most of his rumours up so he can make some fast cash$$$

What a great job lol.

But GMs talk trade everyday, so there is ALOT of talk going around. Most never come close to happening but they do talk.

Yeah, but no GM is going to go to HockeyBuzz and send an email to Eklund and say


"Hey Ek, guess what, Gomez is going to become a Canuck once we sign Sundin...hehehe.

From, Slats"

e1-e4 = I'm pulling **** out of my ass or copying stuff from the trades and rumours board
e5 = I report what I see from TSN Sportsnet and HFboards. I occasionaly break the minor signings. I also get some e5s wrong so don't trust me until you see confirmation via tsn/sportsnet

Dang you're right GongShow, my calculations are way off base wheres Reed Richards when you need him? Oh yeah, thats right Eklund's reporting hes being traded to the X-Men for Kitty Pryde. I guess the Fantastic Four needed someone else who could turn invisible on their roster.

whats confusing is that everyone bashes eklund, but posts his rumors and gives him advertising and publicity (although it is bad publicity)

Yeah....definitely odd. You know what though there is some actual good content on that website of his, however, most of it if not all of it is not authored by him. Jon Jordan, the reporter for the Lightning for example, has had some really insightful information this off-season. Anyways...back to whats really important...I'm going to the kitchen for some pizza bagels (e5)

Doesn't Eklund receive money for the amount of hits he gets on his webpage?

If he does, then can't you imagine why he would do this...

The only rumors he offers are ones we discuss on HFboards about possibilities, or blatantly obvious ones. He doesn't make any phone calls or anything. He's not even partly inside any deal.

Props to Vancouver if they can pull it off. Gomez would be an excellent fit there, unfortunately.

Unless there's a significant return, the NYR should stick with Gomez, IMO. There must be better options than moving him?
