Listen, I’m not going to sit here and tell you that Habs’ fans should be satisfied with Scott Gomez and his 32-point output so far this season.

I’m not going to try and convince you that the Canadiens are getting their money’s worth from Scott Gomez and his -15 rating.

However, those of you who think that Scott Gomez’ value to the Montreal Canadiens begins and ends with his production on the ice are sorely mistaken.

Let me take you back to the 2008-2009 off season, when then-general manager Bob Gainey rolled the dice and changed the face of this hockey team.




About ahefter

I have covered hockey extensively during my 30-year sports broadcasting career. From the Miracle on Ice at Lake Placid to the Edmonton Oiler dynasty years, I've shared my views on hockey with listeners in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. You can "catch me in action" on Youtube at the following URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1n5BdB9ngYw My radio stops include TSN 690 Montreal, CJAD Montreal, CKNW Vancouver, and CKEY Toronto. I also ran the Canadian Press sports desk (radio). My travels as a network reporter have taken me to four Olympics, most recently Vancouver 2010. I'm currently an Applied Assistant Professor within the School of Communication at the University of Hartford.
