A move that i've been in favor of if the right situation came to fruition. Kovy and him together could be feast or famine but they should at least try.

Get him off that contract and out of the spotlight...and for the right price that isn't even remotely close to his current cap hit...it could work easily. Is there room here for another center though?

"The $297,297 Kovalchuk missed today is money he will never, ever get back. And the more cheques he misses, the better the deal is going to have to be for the players to justify him sitting out. And unlike the owners, the players can direct their leadership to get a deal done regardless of how disadvantageous it is to them."

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

I suppose a Sykora like try out with a potential sub-$1 million one year deal wouldn't hurt.

I don't watch any Canadians games, but if he can still carry the puck through the neutral zone he might have some use.

well never say never.....I didn't think Holik or Lemieux would ever be back as Devils...but Lou thought it would help the team so...

But having someone (like Gomez) that passes 99% of the time and shoots 1% of the time might be what Kovi needs to get back to that 40+ goal season consistently.

gomez skates through the zone just like kovy does. carrying the puck up ice is generally not the devils problem.

also center - at least for next year - is the one position the devils do not have to worry about. At this point, they have to really think about moving henrique to wing. Top 3 centers are zajac, elias and josefson.

it was discussed in chat last night, but i think the devils need to move one of their established D (greene would be my choice) for a RW who can score - gagner was my choice.

TVA article (in French)

Google translation to English

Depending on what the hockey analyst Patrice Brisebois has advanced to the show "The Match" on Monday night, Gomez would like to make a comeback with the New Jersey Devils, the organization with which he was successful for seven seasons, between 1999 and 2007.

"It would not surprise me that Lou Lamoriello to submit a contract offer, because he grew up in the organization. Perhaps with a one million and less pressure, he arrives to perform [the expectations], "said the former Canadiens defenseman.

This is exactly the type of move I can see Lou make if we lose Zach on July 1. At which point I will put my head through a wall. God, I want no part of this guy. He's lazy, overweight, and generally is hated by the fans. Even at $1 million for 1 year he'd be overpaid.

As someone said before, for a low Sykora-like deal I could see it.

I don't want a center who hasn't pulled his weight in years. Gio for a Sykora like price is a different story, but I don't see the Habs cutting ties with him yet.

Gio also hasn't hit rock bottom like Sykora or Gomez have.

If Parise walks, the Devils are going to have two top six holes to fill. My guess is Tedenby will be one. Why not buy extremely low on Gomez?

Exactly. I just threw him out as an example of a former Devil who could help this team.

Tedenby has not exactly been lighting up the AHL; I wouldn't count on him for anything.

I think Gomez still has a lot to offer a team if his attitude is right. If Parise walks:

Elias-Zajac-Zubrus
Henrique-Gomez-Kovalchuk
?-Josefson-Clarkson

me likey.
