This is an absolute steal for the Sharks.  Gomez did get bought out, so he doesn't really need a big contract right now.  But damn, this is a great deal for the Sharks.

Where does he fit into their lineup?

Low risk signing for 700.000 don't know where he will fit but maybe they are using him as a 3rd liner or some kind of mentor to the young guys like Couture.

talk about a drop in contract cap...

 

good for him, and great god - what a steal for Sharks. even if it's one year the guy should be poised to prove everybody wrong. unless he pulls a.... mmmm... Scott Gomez... and scores 2 goals the entire season ;)

My dad in nor Cal says they don't need him being a Sharks fan of course. Apparently 1 goal a season is worth $700,000 now days. Dang

This is a guy who failed utterly to perform on a huge contract. UTTERLY! He went more than one full year without a goal, and he's completely useless when he's not scoring. So please explain to me how this signing falls into the "OMG WHAT A STEAL!" category.

Relatively low risk, high reward.  

 

It's hard to think he'll go on a dry spell like the last one.  I haven't seen much of Gomez the last couple seasons though so i can't really speak to what the hell happened to him.

Maybe he can't handle high pressure markets?

Ya, dunno what went sour for him, but with our lack of scoring, $700g would have been well worth a risk...i know he had the one goal thing, but you got to believe a new team could breathe some new life....

Who wants this guy at any price?!  Crazy but awesome the sharks picked him up as we will get to see him 3 times this season, unless he's in worcester by then...
