I rather take a 50+ pt center over a (20g/20a) 40 pt LW that plays crappy defense.
Did you see who Gomez was centering over the last 4 years? The guy never was a goal scorer here (except 1 season).

Just be careful what you wish for. If Gomez signs and sucks on ice, don't ***** about how Lou shouldn't have signed him.

If we don't sign anyone, it means Lou doesn't want to add another roster to the team. If we pursue Gomez, it means we're willing to add a player. That player should be Sykora, not Gomez.
I'd rather have Gomez, gives us the option to put Adam or Yayo on the wing.

I prefer Adam playing wing anyway, we need the scoring touch take a bit the d pressure of playing center away from him.

Signing Gomez would give us a ton more options than Sykie would.

At the right price I'd definitely take him back, and many would let bygones be bygones after he helps us win a few games. We need center and wing depth until Adam gets back, and some cover if Butler or Tedy can't cut it (we would know by the time Adam gets back if one of them is a bust) And we still have the assets to make a trade for another forward if needed or picks.

So if cheap, really no reason not to bring him back.

While there would be some in that scenario, I don't think there would be TOO many. Mostly because of how little his salary would be and how easy it would be to dump him (waivers, albany, whatever). Of course, we sign Gomez and he sucks, people will complain that we didn't sign ______ instead of trade for ________. But that happens with any move.

If we sign Gomez, we're back up to 24 players. Then Henrique comes back. And who knows with Darche?

Could have 26 players on the NHL roster in a couple weeks. Then what do we do? Matteau to juniors and Tedenby and Janssen to the A?

Trade Tallinder for a (prospect/draft pick) in 10 days = 1 spot Henrique
Matteau will go to Jrs in 5 games = 1 spot Darche (hasn't signed yet)
Janssen waived = 1 spot Gomez

I'd do it too. **** the $5 million cap hit. He's better than trash like Tedenby that we're clinging onto.

I am truly excited for the Lou sucks at his job thread coming in a month when Gomez is a regular healthy scratch.

Why because we didn't get Butler a chance?

MTL could buy some of the contract in a trade. Yay new CBA.

Didn't you make a trade proposal about a month ago on the main board wanting to take back Gomez at his $7.5 million cap hit, if he came with Subban as well?

Because all the arm chair GM's here that want Gomez are going to chastise Lou for signing him when he sucks.

I support all moves Lou makes. I disagree with some, but he's a Hall of Famer and I trust that he knows what he's doing. If we sign Gomez, I won't be happy but I hope he proves me wrong.

If we sign Gomez, and he sucks well then he sucks. Can't complain, or at least the people who wanted him here can't.

It's like I said when we were struggling against Florida. This is the match up we wanted. Can't complain about not getting the Flyers/Pens/Boston.
