I have been reading HIO for several years now and have enjoyed the article and for the most part the discussions. If at the start of the season you would have told me the habs would finish 5th at worst and still potentially be 2nd I would have been one happy camper after the last few years. I have become discouraged however by the negativity of so many when there is so much to be enthusiastic about both now and in the future for the habs. I think its time for people to sit back and reflect on the teams success and cheer for even more . In the meantime I think I will avoid scrolling down after the articles.

While I wouldnt give Gomez much above the league minimum now at one time he must have been worth what he is getting because someone had to agree to pay him those bucks . Dont blame him for signing to make so much money anymore than you would blame any business person for maximizing profit. A product is only worth what someone is prepared to pay and someone[Sather/Gainey] were prepared to pay what Gomez is being paid. He is virtually untradable even to teams struggling to meet cap minimums so unless Molson is prepared to spend mega bucks for nothing Gomez will be with the habs. As long as he can perform at an NHL level we will be getting some albeit minimal returns for our investment . Anything beyond that should be viewed as a bonus and celebrated.

Agreed but his stats dont look too bad either.

Anyone who can handle acquit himself well against Wilson must be looked at closely and with a name like Thrower he might answer future toughness needs.
