Official Gomez thread

I'ved only seen 5 periods of play from him, but alrerady I have noticed a difference in his play. He is stronger on the puck, he is making smarter decisions, and he is scoring!!!
When he scored in the first tonight, he was just like. yah. I'm scott ****ing gomez and I score goals. whaddup... I think he's finally ready to put in the effort that wearing the red white and blue sweater demands, and represent this team with the pride and passion that he has lacked in his first two seasons. What do you guys think?

Yes it was... but the good thing is that it is easier to improve on a lack of effort than lack of talent.

Never been a fan of Gomez but for this upcoming season, I'm a believer.

I expect him to get 60+ pts this season.

It's more of where you put your efforts sometimes..

If he can cut down on the "attitude" (i.e. retaliating to a legal check with a slash) and concentrate on playing hockey instead, he can really do something this year !

I don't want him to lose his fire. No thanks.

Does he still shoot the puck right at the Goalie? Does he still do the J-hook in the opposition end? Hrm.

I always try to protected him here or when talking hockey with peoples and I really hope he will proove me right with a nice rebound season. Having two two-way centers with first line production would be amazing for the team.

GO GO Gomez !

Gomez is the safe pick for the Habs 'comeback player of the year'. Outside of Markov I think he can make the biggest difference out of any player when compared to last years preformace.

Nope, he's going to the net and actually shooting the puck when he has an opening.
Just have to hope he keeps it up.

Still sucking balls on faceoff's though

If Gomez keeps it up he might match his season total for goals from last year before the end of this preseason

I'm exaggerating obviously and I actually like the guy, I've been telling people all summer that I think he's gonna have a big year. I do tend to be overly optimistic though but I can't wait to see how the season plays out for Gomez.

I'd really like to know how that works...So when a guy does great in preseason it's reassuring and we love it but when a guy doesn't....it's not important? Cause preseason games means so much? If true, shouldn't it mean so much good or bad? Tough to follow sometimes....If we believe that Gomez will rebound and have a good year, it better be based on what we think MaxPac will bring to the line and the little big of dignity that Gomez had after having his worst career season. That alone could be reason enough.....not his performance during preseason....IF you are a believe that preseason is not important....

Couldn't be much worse than last year, from what I have seen his play hasn't changed and I am not in the crowd that thinks 39points and up = win!

I am more interested in his play than his point totals. If he keeps doing what he has been doing all along he belongs on the third line.

It was very important when Gomez was not producing last year. Are you really oblivious to the criticism he's gotten?

I agree though, basing any type of definitive opinion (good or bad) of a veteran off preseason is wrong.

As you said, Gomez will bounce back mostly due to his linemates, but also luck. He had a terribly unlucky year, similar to Plek a couple years ago. If he gets his shooting numbers up as well, it would not hurt him.

We will see..

Suppose it is best to reserve judgment until twenty games into the season or so. I'm not convinced he will come close to 60+ but hey, I'd love to be proven wrong.

Exactly my thought... So far, he scored one fluke goal (last year scored a couple like that) and his shot still looks weak. I do want him to have a 'bounce back' year (we need him), but it's preseason.

I gotta admit as a long time naysayer of Gomez's he has looked quick and sharp to this point, although it's preseason it is a little encouraging. I seen him a couple times driving the net and doing things I didn't see often last year, but he's still Scott Gomez, we'll see if it carries on into the season, he hasn't convinced me yet.

For the record, I would love nothing more then for him to get 70 pts and carry this team. I will have np saying I was wrong about him, but I still think it's unlikely. I know some wish he will fail to prove they have been right all along, I don't fall into that category.

I was prohalak and when Carey Price carried the team last year, I had np admitting that I may have misjudged the situation. The same holds true for gomer, I hope he does well. The habs success depends on it, so if this is the gomez we get all year long that can only be a good thing. I still seen some of his poor decisions and turnovers from last year in his game. Hopefully he didn't use up 1/3 of his goals in preseason.

I cant believe you guys actually believe in gomez... I mean, he is bad. Yes the guy can skate, but he is far from a complete player . There are always trends on hfboards but this one is ridiculous. Scott has never been good since he is in mtl.
