I'm over hating on him. He left, ruined his career/reputation, and I hope now he's matured.

 

I don't like the idea of him taking a roster spot from a younger player, but if he can contribute and play well here, I'm all for it.

My anger for him is gone as well. I hope he can contribute, but I don't see how they fit him in.

I'd be surprised if he made the team.  He's been a zilch since the 2010-11 season.

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.

But he can't contribute. He's done. This is all a sick joke.

It's not a sick joke - we all thought the same about Sykora.  Lou is nothing if not loyal.  But yeah, I don't think he'll make the team, but maybe he impresses someone else in the preseason games he plays.

I'm sick of bringing back these players. I won't go as far as to boo Gomez but I hope he has a horrible camp and is never seen from again.

I hope Lou invited him so that he could be the one to officially kill Scotty's playing career when he dismisses him at the end of camp.

Sykora was two years removed from a 25-goal season, Gomez is FOUR years removed from his last good NHL season.

The difference is the kind of player they are.  Sykora has to score to be useful - even after scoring 20 goals he wasn't able to get an NHL contract.  Gomez can still play a 3rd line role and get 10 goals-20 assists and be a useful contributor because of his puck skills.  Do I think he'll do that?  No, I don't, I think his career is probably over.  But maybe being a healthy scratch on a bad Panthers team was a wakeup call.

seriously.. why. why. why can this damn team never get away from bringing back their old washed up has been players of the past. fvck man.. i cant take it. What exactly do they think he is going to provide us with? seriously i would love to know what is he going to bring to this team? there are already too many damn forwards here and carter is still unsigned, this makes it kind of clear he is most likely not coming back as well. send gomez on a one way trip back to mexico already he blows.

I didn't comment on the other thread, but I believed the rumour because it's Lou and this is what he does. It went from being fun at first to pretty fvcking sad.

 

Scott Clemmensen and Scott Gomez were not two Devils that needed to be brought back or given a chance to make the team.

Clemmer on a 2way makes him the definition of "whatever". Gomez on a PTO is also fairly innocuous because lots will have to go wrong for him to make the team even if he has a decent camp.

Besides 05-06 Gomez has never cracked 20 goals. If he can still take the puck into the zone like he used to then he could possibly help. I'm not really all that mad about it.
