i am happy he is getting a tryout. you never know and maybe he will be rejuventated. the playing for the rangers thing doesnt bother me. i dont hold grudges against sykora, holik, driver and maclean over it either
Mac was already a team removed from the Devils when he went to the Rangers. As was Sykora, who was traded to them, so how anyone could hold a grudge against Sykora is a mystery.
Driver, Holik, Gomez...what are you going to do? The Devils got the best value out of all three of those players, especially since they weren't dumb enough to make the age-old GM mistake of playing good players like Holik and Gomez superstar dollars. The funny thing is Holik's and Gomez's Ranger numbers weren't that bad...about in line with what they had done as Devils, really, but expectations rose to unfair levels by virtue of the Rangers' gross overpayment of both players.
Those two got more money than they ever could've dreamed of...I can't kill them for it. At the same time, I can't say I'll ever be a big fan of Gomez if he somehow makes the team...I know he's a bit of a doofus, but the Devils got a lot out of him and he got to be part of two Cup winners...I think he could've been a little more appreciative of that, instead of letting Sather say that the Devils didn't use him properly. But who am I to question the genius that is Sather...his two-decade plan to bring the Rangers another Cup seems to be taking shape.
