Whether you like the trade or salary or not, this guy is a good hockey player. Great skater, played good defense last season and has good offensive ability. Maybe this is finally the perfect center for Andrei Kostitsyn.

I think getting out of New York will help this guy, offensively. They were pretty awful offensively.

He is basically a slight upgrade of Koivu.1 inch taller 15 lbs heavier,younger.The only thing wrong is his cap hit.

Well my first thoughts were that he's too similar to Koivu, at least when it comes to stats. But is he the same kind of leader with a big heart? So in worst case scenario if they decide not to keep Koivu, we didn't gain anything. I don't know if it's even possible anymore, but if they do keep Koivu, we are in pretty good shape centerwise. Nevertheless, I'm still keeping my hopes up for getting the absolute star-player.

My two cents.

People should realize that Bob Gainey has found us an excellent 1st line centre to work under Jacques Martin's system...a system in which Gomez finds himself at his best, a system that won Stanley Cups.

I think this trade is a good thing, yes he has a inflated cap hit but if you take the 3 millions we dont have to give to higgins, he is now about the same salary as Koivu's.

New York never had success with these players because the players didn't fit their system, all the experts said this... Bob got us an excellent players for Martin's system. When you built a team you dont want to look at individual players... you have to look at their styles of play.

Welcome to the team Scott. I bleed BLEU BLANC ROUGE and so should you!

this is a great trade until a year from now, when an actual franchise player becomes available but the salary cap space is taken up by the 15 goal scorer making $8mil.

the good news is that the new gm will buy out this bloated joke of a contract in 2013 when the habs prepare for the 20th annivrsary of their rebuilding.

Welcome to the team Scott, but sadly this is a big hint that Saku's days numbered. I wish you the best of luck, and hope you play to your contracts amount.

On a side note, I have always been interested in numbers. Now that Gomez is a Canadian, what number will he resort to? His #19 in New York as well as his #23 are both retired in Montreal. I am thinking of either 21 or 91.

Not happy about over paying for you.

Not impressed giving up a top-notch propect.

Hope it all works out for you in habsville...on that note

WELCOME TO THE HABS

This also ensures that Kommi will not be back, he will be a Ranger with his buddy Chris. Dumb move Bob, he will score 10 goals this year, Higgins will score 25.

We really overpaid for this one, BOB,cant score, he what are you doing??????????

We really overpaid for this one, BOB,cant score except against the Habs.Maybe sometimes the way to overcome your competition is by owning them? :blink: This is exactly the kind of move I expected from Bob !GRRRR. :angry: Had he been informed he didn't stand a hope in hell of getting the twins and,to tick off Lawton,he decided to go his usual route and rescue other teams from their mistakes instead of be concerned with improving his team?I didn't want LeCavalier,but this is even worse as far as I'm concerned!7mill +for a 10to 20 goal scorer?Well,now that it's evident Koivu is gone,he will most likely finally fill us in on the stuff he alluded to that we don't know about!

What ticks me off even more is that Bob threw in McDonaugh to boot instead of ridding us of Obyrne!?

Gomez may well end up producing a little more than Higgins(as he should)but ,HOLY COW!He costs us 2 to 2 1/2 times as much!

How can you foolishly not realize that you are paying him about the same money as you were paying for two players,and you still have to replace one of them!? :blink:

Someone please fire Bob Gainey

Molsons are taking over why not rebuild>

Why not sign everyone you have.. NO TRADING sign them for 2-3-4 yr deals max, for a reasnable amount, and then trade them next year, and rebuild from the draft,.

How is Gomez going to change our team and get us that much better, YES he will fit the new coahces system which uis key and is what we havent done in the past in the carbo system, which no one relaly knows what the carbo sstem was exactly.

But that being said, how is giving away your CAPTAIN KOIVU... Yes koivu to free agaency... and then 4 otherplayers, including a 1st line winger, yes higgins played ont he first line, and then ou est prospect on D for gomez goiung to help our future
