QUOTE LIBRARY

“I’m the first to admit it, the first one to say it. I was awful and I let the guys down. There’s no one more embarrassed than me.” - Scott Gomez - Yahoo Sports May 22, 2011

From the 2010-2011 thread:

“Hey, I’m not going to kid myself. I’d love to be 6-4 and the starting pitcher for the Yankees, but it didn’t work out that way. We knew with the group we had, it didn’t matter how big you were. Heart goes a long way.” - Scott Gomez, The Globe and Mail

said all the right things at the end of last year. hes been completely written off but just remember....his first year he started off slow and then was ppg for the rest of the year, and he was great in the playoffs

last year was horrible but i havent forgotten that he can be a key player. having patches from the start sure wont hurt. im predicting a big improvement but thats not much of a prediction is it? lol

Gomez for you the going must be rough

Playing for us is really tough

Now it's out there you are up for a trade

Your mindset cannot be good,cannot be made

But I think you will get your chance this year

To redeem yourself, never fear

What happens next is up to you

Just get out and do what we know you can do

GO GOMEZ GO :blink: :blink:

Fixed for you. ;)

His first year was better than 2010-11, but it was still a disappointment, make no mistake. You pay $7 million for a center, you expect him not to disappear into a giant vortex of non-productivity for a third of the regular season.

At this point, my expectations are so low that 50 points will be a welcome surprise. Fifty lousy points from a $7 million cap hit.

Ya, he's got the speed still, thats pretty clear. What he's lacking (from a viewers perspective) is remembering the fundamentals of hockey that lead to goals.

(edit) Gomer, your not gonna get around Zdeno Chara , Andrew Ferrence or Johnny Boychuck everytime you carry the puck from behind Cary all the way across to the bruins zone on one of your failed deke attempts. When there isn't gaping opportunity to take it on the opposing goaltender....please, please, please, just dump the puck in and chase. It will be better to watch then horrid turnover after turnover.

Gomez is taking his summer training seriously. He wants to make sure that he does correctly the exercises prepared for him by Pierre Allard, the Habs conditioning coach. He invited him over to his home in Alaska to supervise and insisted to pay the traveling expenses.

It's good to see the dedication. It'd be even nicer, of course, to see better results from it in 90ish days. :) It'd be so great to watch him have a wonderful season. Not just for the team's success, but for his personal achievement as well.

Argh, it's still July. :(

All well and good, but I remember Latendresse talking about getting in better shape in at least two off-seasons, too. ;) Talk is cheap, and while training is nice, it won't amount to a hill of beans if Gomez continues to shy away from the net and plays a perimeter game.

I agree 100%, and won't get my hopes/expectations up until the season starts.

However, I also believe in second chances. So while I won't forget about the last couple of years, Scott gets a clean slate from me in terms of evaluating him next season, and I'm really pulling for him to succeed.

Absolutely we have to give him a clean slate, but this is his make-or-break year as a Montreal Canadien. He's run out of excuses. If he can't get it together this year and bounce back with at least 55 points and a solid two-way effort through 82 games, he'll be done as a Hab, and maybe even as an NHL pro if Gauthier is forced to bury him in the minors for the remaining two years of his awful contract.

I don't really know when this move has ever come in handy in a hockey game. Hopefully he's training at other things too.

As for his off-season workouts, yes it's nice to see he at least recognizes he needs to put in some more effort. Weep's comparison to Latendresse is valid, because like Gomez, there seems to be a disconnect between what he said in interviews and the effort he gave on the ice every night. In Gomez's case, it's partly about giving a consistent effort but it's also about being in the right head space to compete. Gomez needs to be willing to get his nose a little dirtier, take the puck into traffic, and go harder to the net for rebounds.

LOL. True, but that would imply Gomez actually plans on taking the puck to the net in the first place. If the spread-eagle dive is something he's practicing because he plans on taking the puck hard to the net, then by all means.
