This. The only thing hard to replace about Gomez is finding someone who could possibly be that overpaid.

Oyz and others are right. As much as I would love to dump Gomez. We don't have anyone in our own system who can replace him. Our team would suffer if we left it alone, but I think it's a sacrifice I would be willing to make anyways.

We're a cap spending team and all indications are we will be for the foreseeable future. I do think we could replace him rather easily with the money we would save, how and where, I'm not really sure, but I have a hard time believing a 38 point center with -15, soft as butter would be tremendously difficult to replace with over 10million in cap space. I would even be happy with Arnott or someone as a 1 year stop gap and reevaluate next UFA season when the crop is much better, and load up somewhere else with the savings. I think if you have an offer to rid yourself of his cap hit you would be foolish not to act.

Some of the street workers there have manly voices. It's quite disturbing.

its not. I mean I could live with him being an awesome shutdown center but he isnt even that. He sucks at faceoffs. The only real quality is him carrying the puck from our zone to the the other blue line...where he magically turns it over.

We are a cap spending City! That's why I got very upset at Gautiier when we didn't load up at trade deadline with 4 Million in the bank. Were injury plagued(That comes with Montreal) & if we spent that cash, maybe we could of pushed Boston in overtime...maybe!

You are... but how about all those they signed as UFA over the years ?? you know, those 5M$ players ?

A strange part of Island, but I'm sure every Metro City has them... It's contained here.

I don't have to find magical qualities, his track record speaks for itself. You are the one with some kind of hidden agenda.

So you want to give up draft picks at the deadline when we are missing 3 of our key players in Markov, Gorges and Patches? That's horrible asset management.

Doing that would be fixing a leaky roof imo.

Oh your tired of fixing leaky roofs, but you wanted to fix a leaky roof at the deadline with some band aids? I'm glad you think things through fully.

This was not the year for us to go for a home run.

That's a gross exaggeration. Overpaid, yes..... like most of the July 1 2007 free agents. But garbage? No.

He had one really low scoring year, this year. The other three years, he had more points than Plekanec, averaging 62.3 points per season in 78.7 games versus Plekanec 59.3 points per season in 81 games.

For the Rangers Gomez was leading or second leading point getter his two years there, and second again his first year here.

I understand he is not a $7.3M value at this time and I might not be averse to being rid of his cap hit if we commit to another good 2nd line center, but folks are going way overboard on the Gomez criticism here.

He was disappointing this year, but certainly NOT garbage for four years. A 60 point centreman is not garbage, in fact we are paying one $5M per year and everyone seems quite happy with that.

Gomez still has wheels and heart. If we can't trade him and he rebounds to close to 60 points playing with Gionta and Pacioretty, I wouldn't be totally surprised either.

I think gomez will have a much better year with Pacioretty and Gionta on his wings rather than Moen and Gionta, or some other combo of Gionta + plugger. Everyone knows Gomez is a passer and when you only have one legitimate threat to cover, he looks bad out there. He will hit the 60 pt mark this year with those 2.

This is Hockey's biggest market, get back to me when you live a day on the Island...Take the Washington cap off, it's to in the face of people that believe in the Expos... Why would you use that Avatar? your trying to be controversial.

If we didn't have to watch him faff about for 20mins a night dragging his line down it would be alright. We could bury him on a checking line and drink away the cap hit for a few years. The facts are staring everyone in the face, he isnt a2nd line centre in the nhl. It comes as no suprise that people are still defending him and gaineys massive ****up. Giving him any value is too much.

His error is that we don't need the player(s) coming back to be the one replacing Gomez, and doesn't need to be the same cap hit, but for the rest, you are more wrong than he is.

Don't bother replying.
More wrong then he is? Don't bother replying?

Dude, are you out of your freackin mind?

DD had a better ppg with worse linemates and pp time IN HIS ROOKIE SEASON. We have 2 NHL ready young centers who are waiting for quality time and wingers but we need to replace Gomez with somebody else? Eller and Desharnais both played on the pk so please explain how they are more defensive liabilities then Scott Gomez who was the king last season of leaving his man open in the slot?

That's the problem with Montreal, we have no kids that are able to shine because unless somebody gets injured they're never given the chance in the 1st place. I can't even believe we're discussing so what to get back for 7.3 Gomez when we could patch up our problems at wing and develop our next top 6 center....
