Would You Pred Fans Want Gomez?

Just wondering if you fans would think this following deal would be fair?

Preds gets: Gomez, Hale, 4th

NJ gets: Hartnell, Kline/Parent, and Legwand, 3rd


I think this would be a good trade for both teams. Preds get a hard nose dman that can play better than Yonkman/Henry and they would have a centers with a great blend of size and skill (Arnott, Gomez, Vasiceck, Smithson/Nicol). Losing Hartnell would be ok with the signing of Dumont and the promotion of Upshall.

As for NJ they would get closer under the cap. They can play decent dman prospect in their minors that wont count against the cap. Legward isnt near the level of Gomez, but hes young and a change might help him. Hartnell's value isnt as high since hes a UFA next year, but he can play a 2 way game that NJ likes to play.

That's a huge overpayment for Gomez.

I would think that as the deadline approaches, NJ players might be had for a premium, mayby not on the scale of Roenick to LA but, teams aren't going to want to give up much for a NJ salary dump, even if it was Gomez. How many teams are lining up for his services currently? Not that having Gomez on your team is a bad thing.

Hmm, I would have thought it was pretty fair if not leaning to NJ. Scott is a 1st line center and Hale is considered a possible top 4 dman in a year or so.

Hartnell seems like he will not sign an extension and Legwand never really hit his stride yet and might be a considered a 3rd liner. Kline/Parent would just offset the skill difference.

This trade would ONLY happen because of the Devils need to remove salary. Therefore, the Preds would not have to return 'equal' quality players for the trade to be made. Its called a salary dump for a reason and fair trades aren't part of the equation.

Big over payment from the Preds on this, regardless of Gomez being a #1 center and Hale being a 2nd line quality Dman.

Reading the articles in the paper from Hartnell sounds like this is where he wants to be they just didn't agree on a long term deal this season.

Legwand is a good defensive center that can play on the top line.

Parent also has top 4 potential as a big shutdown defenseman that is extemely fast and is 6'4". Klein is a smooth skating two-way defenseman that's ready to make his mark in the NHL.

To me, Parent and Hale are about equal.

So you're telling me Gomez is worth Hartnell, Legwand and Klein?

I sure hope this is the truth.

Would make sense for him, financially, being his UFA season.

I think he's a great player but he's not worth the package listed above.

I don't want to go after Gomez because he's UFA next year. Too much to give up for a guy you could lose for nothing.

I also don't think there is anyway we'd take on that kind of salary at this point. I do think that Kariya could be gone after this year, giving us some room to work with next year. Possibly could pick up him via UFA.

If we give up assets like this, I think we should be gunning after a young center (or center prospect). I still think we might be able to play our cards right and snag either Jeff Carter or Mike Richards. Bob Clarke makes changes quickly when his team is sucking. I'm still holding out hope for a scenario like that.
