Potential for a trade? Who on earth would take in that contract?

Buy him out stupid Sather. 2M cap hit for the next 10 years means you can free up 5M in cap space for the next several years.

personal feelings aside, its too early to cut bait on gomez.

the contract stinks and i'd doubt that edmonton would want it - even if they were to shed penner. gomez's contract is longer and much more onerous.

with torts forechecking scheme and a sure bet the rangers will try to acquire offense this offseason - be it through trade or UFA - they'll try to get gomez someone to work with.

i would say that gionta going there is a very strong possiblity - which frankly i'm fine with. the rangers will give gionta 3/12 and he'll be a 3rd line player for them.

Love this wish list from a stupid Ranger fan:

San Jose is looking to make big changes and they might be looking to deal Thorton and Cheechoo. I don't think they'd trade Marlow. He's their captain and he's the only one who performed well in the playoffs.

My wish list:

Thorton and Cheechoo for Gomez, Drury.

Package Zherdev and some prospects for Marty St.Louis.

Sign the Sedin twins!

Their fans are stupid enough to forget to throw Sather in the trade.

This is how big your signature should be. Any larger and you are compensating.

I hate the bastard but would absolutely love seeing the top two lines:

Parise-Zajac-Langenbrunner
Elias-Gomez-Gionta

Won't happen in any sense... but hmmm

of course you have to sign him to a string of one year deals so he has something to play for.

Eventually Gomez has an extremely nice contract for teams, it just hasn't gotten to that point in the contract yet.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Gomez looked lost as he consistently turned over the puck in traffic while just as consistently turning away from hits. Neither Gomez's mind nor body were willing or able to assume the burden and responsibility commensurate with the job as first-line center.


Sounds like they're describing the Scott Gomez that played with the Devils. Brooks is talking out his a$$ when he says that they didn't expect him to turn into a different player after signing the huge contract.

Rangers should be looking to dump Drury. Gomez is only overpaid by like a million dollars. Drury's contract is absurdly bad.

Big market hockey. It's what ruined the NHL aand caused us to have this salary cap. If there were harsher restrictions on the big market tams like the Rangers, Flyers, Red Wings, and Leafs, who constantly dominate the FA market year in and out, trowing ridiculous contracts at players like the Gomez and Drury one, I bet it wouldo do wonders for the league in many ways. Just MHO.
