In his post-practice scrum today, Scott Gomez compared Carey Price to Martin Brodeur.
He said he was blown away by Andrei Kostitsyn’s skill level.
He likes playing with Mike Cammalleri.
And he’s surprised the Bell Centre will be sold out tomorrow night for the exhibition opener against Florida.
Gomez delivers these observations with a ready smile and the affability that is characteristic of Americans.
He’ll be a joy to cover this season.

In addition to his new masks, Carey Price has a fresh Canadiens’ cap.
Blindingly bright red.
And in hip-hop style, he’s left the label – size 7 3/8, ladies – on the bill.
