An interesting comparison of the basic career stats of Scott Gomez vs those of Saku Koivu (full years only):
More or less identical. Gomez has a better plus/minus average -- the latter padded by his years playing the trap in New Jersey. Probably the only true advantage that Gomez has is that he gets injured less. But is that really worth a $7.357M/yr cap hit vs Koivu's $3.5M deal with Anaheim?
And for all the Guy Bertrand followers out there, Gomez doesn't speak a lick of French, in private or public.
