You are judging a person's character, that you know nothing about, based on his subpar (definitely subpar!) hockey play. God damn that is hilarious in its ridiculousness. I would bet that Scott Gomez has done more for other people than you ever have or ever will! And I mean that both for the community, charity, and for his teammates - notice young guys giving him credit all the time for helping them transition in the league, no doubt the guys like having him around and he's a good teammate.

Anyway, call me an apologist all you want, I think Gomez has played like **** and I honestly think when healthy we are close to being a better team without him in the lineup at all, but jeez people need to learn to separate a human being from the sport. It's sad, but also a perfect example of why I try not venture into any non-news thread!

What can you say? People have a blind hatred when it comes to Gomez. People just bash him for the sake of bashing him, over anything. I see plenty of people bashing him even when he has a strong game.

I can't stand him on the team, but I love him as a human being, he's got such a great personality and seems like a great friend to have. He's done plenty for the community, charities and whatnot, more than probably anyone that bashes him endlessly on these boards.

A nice guy wouldn't wear a number nobody wants him to wear just to piss off the entire fan base he plays for.

The only thing embarrassing is your defending the worst player in the history of this franchise. Georges Laraque could help this team more than Gomez does.

Keep going. Really, I'm anxiously awaiting to see what more "proof" you'll put out of your rear end.

Imagine if Cole wouldn't have started the year so slow...He had 3G 2A in the first 15 games, and 5G 6A in his last 11 games.

On top of that, he has so many scoring chances...With all the chances he creates with his speed, he should probably be our leading scorer right now.

You know, even if this guy doesn't pan out to be as good as he's been lately throughout his entire contract, at least he will be a good mentor and a good influence to our up and coming players.

What he did for Leblanc and his family is an extremely classy and just downright great way for a teammate and human to act. It's very possible that many similar acts occur like this through an NHL team's season, but we rarely hear about them, perhaps it would be good to have more of these feel good stories once and a while.

Can't complain with Cole! Exactly as advertised, minus some of the implied dependencies on one Eric Staal (looks like it might have been the other way around).

At his age I doubt his scoring output will maintain at the pace it's been the last 10 games or so, and he'll have some slumps like the beginning of the season, but his presence alone is worth it.

If only he were younger and we knew we could look forward to many more years of his play

i don't really call it slumping in the begining. if i recall he was get like 13 minutes a game and wasn't being put in a position to play his game or being properly used by martin. or you could say martin was just easing him in, idk. not to mention starting up with a new team. i have to say i wasn't worried about the siging or his start. i had a good feeling it would smooth out well. sure there's a ways to go in the contract, but it should be good for a while i hope.

10:25 min (27:04-16:39) more ice-time than the second forward on the team in one game must almost be an NHL record?

nah

put DD with anyone and he'll score goals.

We should bring back Dagenais
he was a pure Goal scorer but could've not play hockey.


Cole played a hell of a game yesterday!

Cole and DD are by far our best offensive forwards this year, as far as consistency goes. DD would be the leading scorer if more people converted on his chances too - I still don't know how Cole missed that slot pass last night. I'll blame it on the 27 minutes of ice-time.

DD helped get Cammalleri going again, which is beneficial to our team.

Cole is definitely my favourite UFA signing of the last 10 years.

Exactly what the Habs needed and still need more in the line up

I guess there has never been a nice guy in the NHL then or any other sports. Moral of the story is, athletes are jerks. But me and you...for sure, we would've given the money back and admit that we suck

What also helped get Cammalleri going was gettig time against lesser opposition.

Cole is the type of guy who works on any line because most of his goals come from his own work, not setups. The 'Staal made Cole' fallacy was disproven even before he signed for the Habs.

Cole has been our best forward, no question...now, if we could just somehow acquire Staal...
