I feel that Gomez has the talent (at least on Edmonton) to center the first line. Maybe not for a better team, but Calgary got to the finals with Craig Freakin’ Conroy. Gomez is better offensively than Conroy. I have not seen enough of him to talk about his defensive skills.
2.9Million on what I assume is a one year arbitration settlement is about what Edmonton wanted to give Nedved. Gomez is younger and gets better each year.
So, until someone gives me a better name and a reason, I’ll stick to my guns.
Besides, I don’t think Oiler managment is too happy with Brewer going to arbitration, AGAIN. Especially after last year. He crapped the bed until the all-star game and sorta turned it up for the last twenty. Brewer has reached his potential, and besides, in Jersey he won’t really bite the Oilers if he does improve (which I doubt)
Dizzamn, that was long.]]>
