The San Jose Sharks are interested. Rumor has it even the Anaheim Ducks and Vancouver Canucks have put their slimy hands on the phone and made calls.
The L.A. Kings have to get in on this.
Scott Gomez is the definition of underachiever if you judge his career since the late New York Rangers years and through his time with Montreal. We are talking about a guy who was being paid a gazillion dollars to not play. He went zero for a season or something like that without a goal, even while playing.
I could not come up with a better set of circumstances for Dean Lombardi to pick up the phone and get Scott Gomez and his agent down here to talk. Oh God, I hope it’s Don Meehan.
The negotiations would take a week, maybe two, tops.
Can you imagine how awesome it would be?
No, not as an L.A. King, you idiot. I want Lombardi to get involved in the negotiations so he can drive up the price. Next thing you know San Jose will sign him to 6 years at $48 million and we will have years of good cheer to piss in their direction.
Fuck it, I am starting a rumor.
Do it Dean!
