Gomez to be traded?

According to Sportsnet, it looks like the New Jersey Devils and Scott Gomez may be headed for a nasty divorce as the two sides get ready for a salary arbitration hearing Friday.

Negotiations have broken off as both sides are still far apart in terms of dollars.

“Time is not on our side. We’ve pretty much gone where we’re going to go as far as negotiations,” Carlos Gomez, Scott’s father and agent, told the Ledger. “We’re too far apart to even talk anymore. It is what it is. Scott knows he may end up being traded. It’s disappointing, but he just wants to be treated like everyone else.”

Sources say Gomez turned down a $4 million offer from New Jersey and if he is awarded anywhere from a $5 miilion or more salary, the Devils will abide by the decision but then look to trade him.

    The numbers would not even be close to working.

    Look, this is simple, The Leafs would have to shed as much salary as they would pick up in Gomez as they are pretty much capped-out now.

    New Jersey can’t take back that salary. If they could, they would not have this problem in the first place and would not be trading him.

    Therefore, no deal.

    He goes a team with cap room for a prospect+pick or a couple picks.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA….the next CANADIENS!!!! thats too hilarious.

    1) Jordan Staal is over-rated and should not have been picked 2nd overall.

    2) Having Malkin and Crosby is nice but what about the other 22 players on the roster?

    3) Win a Stanley Cup and then win 23 more, and then come talk to me about who’s better than the Habs.

    JannetttyTheRocker, I agree 100% with you. Gomez would definately be a 2nd line Center. Horcoff is one hell of a hustler on the ice and that guy can skate!

    As a Montreal Canadiens fan I truly respect the Oilers and it was nice to see a Canadian team in the finals. (I still think the Oilers are better than the Hurricanes…more heart, more determination…they’re just like the Habs in a way. They work well together and they’re not just a group of high paid individuals)

    I even bought myself an Indianapolis Racers jersey with 99 in the back 😉

    Buddy, screw rankings, Espo is THE player to get in the next draft. Now that Radulov left the Remparts and is in Nashville, watch his ranking and stats shoot up. Mark my words.
