As I expected, Scott Gomez wasn’t in a mood to do cartwheels even after being named to his second All-Star team (his first was as a rookie, when he said he was “scared s—less”).
“Maybe earlier in my career I’d be more excited, but I’m more worried about what’s going on in here,” he said.
His goofy, affable exterior aside, Gomez is a more serious team guy than you would think. In fact, for all the Rangers missteps last night against the Flyers, Gomez managed to show some grace afterwards when he took full responsibility for the loss, even if he was hardly one of the team’s worst offenders.
It might not be much to relish given the sorry state of the team right now, but at least the Rangers haven’t resorted to pointing fingers. Or at least not yet.
