Patches wants Gomez next year

He said they had good chemistry, was the reason for some of his success and with Gio, they had amazing chemistry.

More importantly, it was an awesome interview.

I am loving this kid, he is our future, he has such a good head on his shoulders. Respect all around, he handled all of Marino's questions perfectly, nothing but respect for this kid.

It was a 17 minute clip and it was well worth it. I even rewound it a few times.

I enjoy the host calling Edwards an idiot.

We should trade him, he bought a house in Connecticut, obviously a Whalers fan.

Maybe the Habs should move to Hartford ?

I don't think anyone enjoyed it more than Patches. He started the interview discounting NESN, saying he never watches it, then when Marino brought it up, he was all polite, then I loved how the host called him an idiot for him, then I loved patches saying " thank you" to the host for calling him an idiot on his behalf.

He's right. We have to complement our young guys with veterans who, unfortunately, sometimes make more than they should be.

This year we saw the emergence of Price, Subban and Pacioretty simultaneously. When was the last time we had that? Add Eller, Desharnais, White and Weber (he played well when he got a chance), and now Diaz (better than Streit at the same age) and Emelin (who should be a top 4 D man by all accounts), we have a young core of players that are really exciting.

Plus we can add Gorges, Cammalleri and Plekanec to that group, not to mention Captain Gionta and hopefully Wisniewski. So this group is very solid going forward and we need veterans like Gomez, Moen and Gill to round out the group. Sometimes you have to pay over-the-odds for these veterans to get them to come to Montreal, taxes and all.

But look at this group going forward:

Cammalleri - Plekanec - x
Pacioretty - Eller - Gionta
Desharnais - x - White
x - x - x

Wisniewski - Subban
Markov - Emelin
x - Gorges
Diaz, Weber (I don't know where they go lol)

Price

That's a very solid group going forward with a lot of skill. If we can find the right role players and bring up some more rookies that will do as well as these guys have, we'll be good for the Cup in 2-4 years. But you need those veterans and Gomez is one of them.

Actually I forgot, it wasn't Patches that was pimping Gomez earlier, it was David D, Gomez sucked this year but at least he made a real impact upon our youth.

I don't care about his cap hit, I don't care if he isn't a hero like Saku, he brings leadership and teaches the kids how to win.

I'll take winning everyday over the Saku vs Kovalev BS of the past. I want heart and even though Gomez had no heart last year, he has taught our kids heart. Look at how close Price and PK are, they learnt that from Gomer and Gio last year with Cammy being the middle man.

Yup. He just needs to control himself a little more when making fun of Brad Pinocchio. Oh yea, I read the bit about Desharnais saying how Gomer passed him bad pucks ON PURPOSE and he told him "these bad passes will make you a better player."

Did we win something that I wasn't made aware of?

Yea we won the JM won a reprieve for 2 years award for riding a hot goalie to save his job.


Honestly though, we may not have won **** but I believe that Price and PK are winners and they will deliver us the goods. A cup is in our future.

Not a real big surprise. That whole line, Gionta included, worked very well together and was probably the only stretch of time where Gomez didn't look so bad. I think the three of them compliment each other nicely and become a threat once they've established puck possesion in the offensive zone.

Really glad to hear Patches is at 100%, although it must've been a while now, since he was reportedly ready to go if the Habs had advanced to the next round.

Saku spearheaded the underdog teams that upset the heavily favored Bruins in 2002 and 2004, outplayed Joe Thornton, and didn't have -3 or -4 ratings in games against them. He and Kovalev utterly destroyed the Bruins in 2004, racking up impressive numbers of points, including something foreign to Gomez: GOALS.

Thanks for educating me, I would have never know that if you didn't tell me There is a reason Saku is a hero in this town. I've said that many times but I believe this team will win a cup with a core that was taught by Gomez, its just what I believe. There is no doubt in my mind that Saku is 10 times the player and person than Gomez is, I don't deny that, I just don't think Saku is a winner, in terms of Stanley Cups, its my personal belief, I dont demand others to share my thoughts or beliefs, its just my hope ... why because I want a cup and I think PK and Price can deliver it.

Saku didn't, for me, it is that simple.

I love Saku, but I'm in the camp that feels him re-signing would have held us back from moving in the right direction. I'm not saying keeping him would be worse than having Gomez, but at the time it seemed possible we'd be landing a star caliber #2 center who is a bit overpaid but shows up in the playoffs. Basically an overpaid Koivu who is better in some areas but lacks that game breaking heart. This is something Koivu definitely had, he could throw a team on his back!

Remember all the horrible teams we somehow scraped together wins with?

I wouldn't go as far as saying Saku isn't a winner, reason being for 90% of his career he was actually held back by a terrible franchise which he was loyal to. Can blame him for caring about Montreal and being dumb enough to stay, but our lack of winning never had a thing to do with Koivu. Had our management put together a competent team for him he'd be even more highly regarded in Montreal because people would've been able to see how dangerous Koivu was in his prime with real tools to show it. The guy made Chris Higgins look like a superstar in the making. He has a knack for playing well aside less than favorable wingers. I have to give him credit it where it's due. He's actually a born winner imo, but it's a team sport sadly.

Your post sounds more like wishful thinking than actual opinion.

I know that because you tell the reader how unsure you are about 5 times : "I believe, it's my personal belief, it's just my hope, I don't ask you to believe too". It just sounds like you're trying to convince yourself of something that's not there.

Have the courage of your opinions whether they are positive or negative. Ignoring reality because it's harsh doesn't make it go away. Gomez is not any more of a winner than Koivu. The devils had a stanley cup winning cast before he got there, and he was merely a supporting character, and not a very good one for at least his first cup. Swap Koivu and Gomez and Koivu is winning cups left and right while Gomez is vilified for being gutless and horrible. The habs would also have been without a captain. Gomez teaching our young players how not to show up for half the season, then the 2nd half, and then the playoffs is the last thing I want to see.

There really is no point in saying Koivu wasn't a winner and saying Gomez is because it's not true. The team Gomez has right now is a million times better than any team Koivu had with the exception of the 1st in the east cast, but that year Gainey screwed it up by putting all his eggs in one basket with Price and so Biron outplayed a rookie in round 2 and that was all she wrote.

Poor Koivu, victim of terrible management decisions since forever.

But you know, carry on with the excuse train for Gomez. It's funny how Gomez is getting so much rope for sucking whereas Koivu wasn't given any for playing with twice the effort, courage, determination and heart with half the tools, and with sucky teams around him. Sometimes I just don't get how people think.

It's just something I believe.

ech,

I don't think Saku is a victim of bad management, nor do I think Gomez is lucky for being drafted a devil. I believe that everybody has a chose and that Saku made bad choices choosing to stick by the bad management and Gomez wanted to be a winner. Why else would Gomez come to Montreal instead of NY.

Thats just what I believe. I don't believe in making excuses, I don't make excuses for Gomez, he sucks but I accept his positives just like I accept the traits that walked away with Saku.
