I guess Montreal has had enough of Scott Gomez....

More goals. More assists. More playmaking. More hustle. More effort. More back-checking. And something a little more mature than a bunch of childish garbage at the end of the game.

Yeah, Gomez likes to run his mouth. He likes to play the part of the big veteran superstar and talk about how P.K. Subban ought to behave. First of all, it would be nice if he played about half as well as Subban. Then he might stop acting like Subban's spoiled younger brother.

Very true. A lot of other fans always say Habs fans are great because they are respectful and knowledgable and whatnot. I always found them to be a whiny bunch myself.

But guys... he has Gretzky-like vision on the ice, remember? And he scores on break-taking end-to-end rushes once every three seasons.

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?

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.

What was he so upset about when he was bitching at the refs? Hes always kinda been a cry baby out there. Not nearly as bad as Crosby.


The fans up in Montreal are good fans. They do love the game, however yesterday, they yelled and booed every time a Hab hit the ice, even if there wasnt a Devil anywhere near them. The game was called fair as far as the refs go.

I don't know about that one. He never seemed like a terribly hard worker or hustler...seemed more like a guy getting by on natural ability more than anything else. I think if he had really dug down and worked as hard as, say, the Zach Parises of the world, he could have been a much better player.

I believe that picture had more to do with Pat Burns, Jacques Lemaire and Scott Stevens.

Whoever wrote this article really needs to take a college level writing class...

I am not surprised that Gomez is acting this way, part of the reason he left was because the organization made him behave and he didn't want any of that.
