Gomez for No Gomez

So here we are, the Rangers on the verge of clinching the Patrick Division and the No. 1 seed in the East, in the hunt for the Presidents’ Trophy in the final week of the season, and who knows what in the playoffs.
And the Montreal Canadiens, that prideful iconic hockey organization, a laughingstock not in the playoff race, a franchise which on Thursday fired its general manager and his predecessor, Habs legend Bob Gainey.
I’m not here to make fun, or make light, of the Canadiens’ plight.
But it sure has been an interesting turn of events since the Rangers’ Glen Sather traded Scott Gomez to then-GM Gainey.
Or, as we here like to sum up the trade: Gomez for Marian Gaborik, Ryan McDonagh, Brandon Prust, Pavel Valentenko and No Gomez.
There are others, I’m sure I’ve seen over the years since the deal. So feel free to link to your own favorites.
Anyway, I’m thinking this might be the column I write for tomorrow, how this trade shaped the fortune of two clubs, especially the one on top, which changed the look of its roster … special thanks to the Canadiens.
