I'd trade Gomez for just about every forward making less then 3M per year

You don't trade Gomez at all this year. And neither do you trade any of the FAs that were signed this year. That's the way it works in the real world.

These hockey video games get people thinking crazy things.

And he is barely a second line center.

And you would have no problem going to war with Plekanec and Metropolit as our two top centers?

Nowhere. I understand you didn't make a mistake, I was just pointing that out for anyone else who was wondering what he made.

If I thought you had made a mistake, I would have facepalmed you.

He goes shelf on Carey several times in the playoffs a few years back, Columbus overpays him too much and everyone (not you guys) thinks he's a great addition... The hell...?

Arent they already?

I'm kidding, but it'll be hard to have a good top 6 with Gomez being so overpaid. I mean like Richards maybe he'll bounce back and I hope so.

Gomez wont be traded since we got him in the off season, but he definitely needs to start putting points on the board... 40 points for a 7M guy sucks.

Just wondering, didn't Cammy and Gionta sign here because we got Gomez via trade?

If so, what would they think if he was traded?

That's why he wont actually get traded... Still I wasnt a fan of the trade at the time and still am not... Lame that we had to go get him to sign good players...

I liked him alot in NJ tho, not sure why he just doesnt have same energy he had back then. Maybe he just misses Gio, we'll seeee.

No, no I wouldn't and as much as I love Gainey, that would quickly change if he pondered that trade for a moment.

For the money he makes, I'm not a fan either. But to know that because we got him, we were able to sign both Cammy and Gio, makes me forget about his salary hit.

He's definitely missing Gio though. I'd like to see more of what I saw in the first encounter with Buffalo this season, when Gomez and Gio worked together for that overtime goal. Chemistry is there, just have to make it work once Gio comes back.

People who REALLY believe this should really get their heads out of thier *****. No one else was offering Gionta a 25 mil contract over 5 years and its obvious Cammy came for the $ as well.

Maybe WE targeted Gio because we had already acquired Gomez but thats about as far as it goes.

You haven't really answered the question. Unless you were serious in saying that Metro is ok for the top-6?

Cammy reportedly got a better offer from Toronto.

I'd trade Gomez for 3 peanuts and I'd even throw a bag of brand new pucks and some used sticks in the deal.

Thank god you're not the Habs GM. Hell, if any of you were, this organization would be set back about 50 years (minus the cups from the late 50's dynasty).

Gainey only acquires albatross contracts, he doesn't know how to get rid of them.
