Just wanted to chime in. I believe that Gomez is 27 and he signed a 7 year deal, according to my calculations that brings him to about 34, which is still younger than 36 (guerin). Gomez has the potential to be a great offensive player, now that he has players like Jagr to pass to. The Isles are grasping for whatever is left. I've said it before and I'll say it again, If your organization hires it's backup goalie as a rookie GM, you have got problems. Better hope DP doesn't get hurt in the next 10 years.
Kudos for Neil Smith seeing this before it happened.
