he's as good as signed there.
He went back to that? What, he didn't like his crazy high number with Montreal and the Rangers?

lol how cute, he wanted his number back. He wasn't going to get that here

The vigil can end now, if the Devils were really in the running, there wouldn't be all these different leaks.

I think he and Drury did rock/paper/scissors to determine who got 23 when they both signed as a FA lol. And it was most likely retired in Montreal.

Gomez was and still is very clutch come playoff time, so I really don't know what you're talking bout. Anyways, Sykora will probably be available after the w-e and Gomez looks like he won't be available in the next 24hrs, so I guess you're right and all 30 gm's... Aren't.

At 700K, he's the bargain of the year.

Gomez clutch? I remember him and Mogilny going through HUGE droughts in 2001, and Gomez almost getting scratched in 2000. The only time I remember him having big playoff performances was in '07 and of course his series with the Rangers against us.

I think you're missing my point so I'm just gonna stop. We can check the Sharks board in a couple months to see how big of a bargain he is.

Gomez is going to be a good player. He never was a bad player aside from last year when it was quite evident he just lost his drive.

I'd see him getting 50 points in a full season, probably 20-23 points in a shortened one.

As I said last night, Sharks today will agree to terms with Scott Gomez on one-year, $700,000 (pro-rated) deal

Decent gamble for the Sharks. They needed some depth at center and Handzus looked really slow last year. Not sure how much Gomez will produce at even strength with guys like T.J. Galiardi and Tommy Wingels, but he'll probably get some time on their 2nd PP unit. Worst case, they can waive him and not put a huge dent into their budget.

You just reminded me something I wanted to say.

Sgarbossa continued progressing and McGinn helped the Avs win many hockey games at the end of the last year. I didn`t really get why they got rid of Winnik, a PKer and a solid bottom6 grinder, who then didn`t do particularly well in San Josť, but he wasn`t bad either. And after they make this weird trade, who did the Sharks keep? Galiardi, who`s been struggling for years. Meanwhile, Winnik starts the season scoring 4 goals in 2 games.

700K for a year. There won't be a better deal this season.

That trade is looking pretty good for the Avs. Kinda funny in that Sgarbossa was traded for one time phenom John McFarland in the OHL. McFarland plateaued for Saginaw and Sgarbossa immediately broke out. Even now, Sgarbossa is among the rookie point leaders in the AHL while McFarland initially was in the ECHL to begin this season.

San Jose had lost a ton of prospects/picks over the years, although Doug Wilson did sell high on a few guys like Steve Bernier.

I don't think they'll have to buy him out. It's only a year!

Haha no I think we're good! I have to wonder what's going on with him though. How come he hasn't been signed? Is he nursing something, or considering retirement? Sykora hasn't been signed yet either.

Probably a good shot that once teams cut their rosters down that they decided to give it a few games to wait and see how their team is shaping up. Doubt too many teams want to now throw someone on waivers after a couple of games when they could have done so last week (and been less likely to lose the player in case its someone of note). Once you miss the boat on bringing in one of these guys for camp/the opener, what's the rush? Bring them in after 5 games when you see how your team is playing and where your need really are.

I thank whatever powers there be that we didn't bother. We didn't need the associated clown show, regardless of his value as a player.

I think it's a low-risk shot-in-the-dark for $700k.

I just didnt want to see the Devils take that low-risk.

That won't be much of an accomplishment but I'm sure you could see some action on that here
