Before I immerse myself in a game of street hockey with my 2-year-old:
As for who might be up to take his place, it depends on what the Rangers are looking for. If the team insists on having a right-handed shot, Alex Bourret or Lauri Korpikoski would be out of luck, and Greg Moore would be getting a shot. Moore currently leads the Wolf Pack with three goals and two assists in five games.
“I had no impact on Gomez whatsoever. I was never here when he was a New Jersey Devil and personally I could care less. It was his choice to decide where he wanted to go play. It was his choice not to want to play in New Jersey anymore and thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s his prerogative. So, to think that we should be easy on him is dead wrong. WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll treat him like any other playerÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s his choice to across the river and play there. ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s up to him. But our job is go to there and win a hockey game.Ã¢â‚¬?
Wow, talk about warm and fuzzy. So my guess there will be no tearful Scott Gomez-Brent Sutter embrace before the game.
