I guess people see what they want to see. I think pk has the best description of him. Goofy. He can barely keep a straight face when joking with Matt. He answered some questions seriously, he was joking around on others. Not sure how you get d-bag out of that. Not sure if you saw him on his first stint, but he does like to joke around.
i still think a properly motivated gomez could be an asset for this team. He knows more than the other tryouts what is expected of him. Then again, I do like the 3 lines that seemed to emerge today. so not sure he would fit on an energy line and I would like to see jj get a shot. He has had his moments but seems to get hurt when he gets going. Gomez would certainly help the 2nd pp unit. And with Marty gone, the more players that can carry the puck out of our end the better.
AS this team gets cut down, will be interesting.
Yeah, seemed like Gomez was just joking around. Like I and others have said, he's a bit of a doofus, and the Devils seemed to know how to tone down his doofy-level better than anyone else.
Another ex-Devil who probably wishes he didn't sign for the huge money with another team...oh well.
I think he's probably in the right place mentally to help the Devils out, but it seems like he's got next to nothing left. It's been bad enough watching guys like Arnott and Holik come back and be shells of what they were (even when that was expected)...don't want to see it with Gomez either.
THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!

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.
