NYR trades Scott Gomez to Montreal for Chris Higgins

Postby Jeffro » Tue Jun 30, 2009 3:17 pm

Per TSN.

Montreal pays Gomez $7.3M per until 12-13. He had 16 G and 58 points last year.

Nice one, Gainey.

One of the worst contracts in the league, can't believe NY was able to get that off their books.

I can't believe the Rangers keep making the same stupid mistakes over and over again when it comes to contracts. After all that fail pre-cap era, they turn around and do it again.

Well this is a step in getting out of the hole they dug themselves, now if they can get rid of that drury contract and put that 14 mil towards some players that deserve it.

They should be more worried about Redden.

Shit, I forgot all about him, yeah that contract won't be easy to get rid of either. 6.5 mil for the next 5 years.

Wow.

Oh, dear...

Well, if Montreal is so willing to take on outrageous contracts, JD should give him a call and offer him Jackman or Brewer.

Will the Rangers be able to dress a team? They've got a lot of forwards to fill in for roughly $15M, depending on what Higgins wants ($3M?). That leave $12M to sign their RFAs and others. Should be fun to watch.

Some think that bounty for Gomez is being used to trade for Heatley.

Gainey sounds like they got him mostly for his playoff experience. Wonder why the Canadiens are worried about THAT. :lol:
