Yah I would think Robinson would have a big impact on this, perhaps making us the favorite.

Gomez will be signed by the Sharks and everyone here will complain about the contract terms.

I think Gomez would be a great addition to our third line. My only concern is that DW will throw him a three-year deal worth 4 million per year

If we can get him for under 2 million, I think it would be a smart move. Galiardi-Gomez-Wingels and Desjardins-Handzus-Burish is a pretty strong bottom six. Plus we have Sheppard in case Handzus still sucks.

I wonder if he can start another hot streak of no goals in 100+ games.

He'll fit in well with this team then.

Both Zus and Murray looked a whole lot better moving around the ice at camp than they did last year. It's pretty amazing what being healthy can do for a player.

And Kurz thinks Gomez sucks...I don't value his opinion on hockey players much.

Let me ask you this, who would you rather have center your 3rd line in the playoffs Handzus or Gomez? Gomez has always performed well in the playoffs, his last two appearance he put up 18 pts in 26 games. Not too shabby, he will bounce back with whoever he plays with this year.

With the Sharks depleted on defense, their top 9 guys will have to outscore their opponents this season.


Here's one of those articles, a very interesting read indeed:

There's something called depth and injuries, KK. Handzus is also a better checking center than Gomez so Handzus could center the 4th line and Gomez can form a scoring third line with Gali and Wingels. Or they could even spread the top six around and pair Gomez with Pavs or something on the third line like the Wellwood-Pavs combo.

Naw, our players play through injuries. Didn't you hear?

What do you expect from someone who shares the same initials as Kim Kardashian?

If it's a one year deal, who cares what the amount is?

The latest from Kypreos:

Sounds like #Devils out on Gomez as well. His list narrows down to team(s) only in West conf. Best bet on #Sharks. No decis' expected tonite

Surprises me he's not going back to New Jersey considering his history there.

I do hope this didn't turn into some 'bidding war' as I don't care what the dollar amount is for a one year deal but I don't know that I'd like a 2 year deal considering the Sharks cap situation next season.

He's an Alaskan boy. Makes sense to stay out West.

I am not sure about the details of the new CBA but does the player who got waived get treated like a regular UFA or do the teams just submit one offer and the player gets to pick one? I assumed the latter.

Gomez is a UFA, if he received multiple offers he can (try to) leverage one team against another to get a better offer like any other free agent.

I really have to think that this isn't about money as he's getting paid his full (well, pro-rated) salary for this season from Montreal. Whatever contract he signs for this year is money on top of that.

@TheForthPeriod

As talks remain ongoing, the Hurricanes, Coyotes & Islanders are no longer in the mix. As I said earlier, Ducks also out

Man, even with him in the line-up, our 3rd line is just one huge question mark - we are relying on three guys to have comeback seasons: Gomez-Handzus-TJ

It's prolly between Sharks, Canucks, and Flames. Hopefully he's a loyal American and says no to the dirty Canadians.
