I never said he had a great shot and he didn't say below average. He said he has no shot. Still the video shows a guy who can shoot IMO. Gomez has a number of snipes from the top of the circles and bombed away from the slot in those links so how can you even say that? No way he lost the ability to shoot at 33. Sorry but if you think that, you know nothing about actually playing the game on any level.

This will go no where no matter how long it goes.
Wow, I'm impressed with the deal. Super stoked to get him at that price.
Me too. I just became a big big sharks supporter, as I am a huge Scott Gomez fan. Having followed him play since.. forever. A very nice deal by your GM doug wilson.
He, Gomez will bring that extra element to your third/4th line. Scoring power (especially that playmaking and passing ability
Having watched Gomez with your team I'm glad to see him smile and talking joyfully. He is looking like he's getting his life together.
A 2 time stanley cup winner might just bring that extra to the sharks that'll get this team far. Will be watching a lot of the sharks games this season. Greeetings and salutations. BR: Stoner
A fantastic playmaker. Last year, in what was certainly the worst season of his NHL career, Gomez's 5v5 primary assist rate (considered the best gauge of a player's playmaking ability) still ranked 31st in the league, ahead of centers like Joe Thornton, Anze Kopitar and Eric Staal. He ranked 23rd by that measure in 09-10 and 14th in 08-09. His vision and ability to exploit gaps in coverage are still near-elite and could be a boon to T.J. Galiardi and Tommy Wingels.
