Wow, shocker. I fucking hate Scott Gomez. He's a pompous little shit who fell off after unceremoniously leaving the Devils for the almighty dollar. Professional sports are a business, but leaving for the cross river rival and then running your mouth about the Devils organization is decidedly not part of the business. Well Scotty got his big contract and lasted about a third of it because he was awful. Just like every other New York Rangers high priced free agent he failed miserably to live up to his contract status. After a failed stint in Montreal, as well as Florida and San Jose, Scotty Gomez is back on a tryout basis with the Devils.
Recently Scotty had an interview declaring he is the same player he once was. Basically blames lack of talented line mates for his regression as a player. Let's be serious Scott. You didn't score a goal for an entire year. To say you are still the dynamic player you were while winning Stanley Cups with the Devils is beyond delusional. Just shut up and play.
I am like any other fan. Scott Gomez is an asshole. I wish nothing but ill will upon him. I hope he drowns while ice fishing in his hometown of Alaska….unless he makes this team. If Scott Gomez makes this team and contributes I will plaster a fucking poster of him above my goddamn bed. Thankfully I still think the chances of that happening are very, very low. As much as I would like to string him up in downtown Newark and throw rocks at him I will support the shit out of him if he helps the Devils win. Does it feel right? No. That filthy little mexican left on shitty terms and I wanted to stick a pipe bomb in his smug little mouth every time he opened it for years after. Whatever though. Petr Sykora left on bad terms and was a contributor to a Stanley Cup finals run in 2012. If Scott Gomez is wearing red and black and playing in the finals in 8 months I'll tattoo his shit eating grin on my ass cheek.
I appreciate the reception Scott Gomez got in his first preseason game back in New Jersey. I hope Devils' fans boo him incessantly until he proves he is a key cog in helping the team win. Winning cures all Scotty. Just do your part and that selective memory of the fan base will kick in. Until then, play in Newark traffic. Because HEY, if your years since leaving the Devils prove anything, YOU SUCK!
Less talky, more…...
