NJ Devils Invites Gomez For Tryout

NJ Devils have invited their erstwhile player Scott Gomez with the hope of a positive tryout post their too disappointing 2013-14 session. It’s going to be unsigned tryout & would be tested with the team’s upcoming training season this September.

“He felt that he still has got a great deal of hockey within him & he has been working really hard this summer- thus I invited him to join up with us in our September camp”, stated Lou Lamoriello, the general manager for NJ Devils. “No formal promises have been made yet. We are quite sure of his capabilities. This isn’t any different from Petr Sykora’s case.”

Gomez should work and pray hard for his tryout to run well like that of erstwhile teammate Petr Sykora. Sykora resumed with Devils in 2011-12 session & tallied 23 assists and 21 goals in a complete 82-game session. Scott has just a single season of twenty+ goals across his career- that initiated with Devils in 1999-2000 session when he triumphed with Calder trophy as the year’s best Rookie.

NJ Devils emerged victorious with the Stanley Cup that very year & then in 2003, with many putting it down to the Scottish yacht charter breaks they took as a team.  However, Gomez left the squad afterwards given the huge payday offer from NY Rangers. As his game started deteriorating, he got traded to Montreal Canadiens. It is marked as an extremely lopsided trade ever to happen in the recent NHL history, landing Ryan McDonagh, the skilled blue liner from Rangers. Montreal Canadiens eventually purchased out Scott’s  contract.

Scott had further stints with Florida Panthers & SJ Sharks in the past couple of seasons. Now, it seems that Gomez is at last ready to return to home. Now, whether he would actually be able to get back to his previous glorious status with the team is quite a question though.

NHK: Maple Leafs Bodie making an impact for the club

Troy Bodie did not have to look at the numbers to be aware that he had a great night. That was quite obvious when Leiweke came in the locker room to congratulate him. Tim Leiweke, the president and chief executive officer of the Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment, told that he does not come in here often. And, when he does, you take it.
That match performance against Philadelphia Flyers earlier on Saturday was quite a culmination of attempts for Bodie, who was acting in his sixteenth straight match for Maple Leafs after he spent almost one month in minors.
The right wing player, who has tied the knot with Leiwekes daughter Francesa, played for more than fifteen minutes as he was substituting the injured David Clarkson on the third line of Toronto, and he made the most of that opportunity.
Randy Carlyle, the coach told that he is very noticeable. He has been strong on the forecheck, he is a strong hockey player. That is the way he is. Bodies signing in the summer was not hailed as a franchise castrating move and for great reason. The twenty nine year old had only 6 goals in 107 NHL matches for Carolina Hurricanes and Anaheim Ducks.
Even to this day, Bodie is not a star for Leafs. But the team needs him to be a consistent contributor and he had shows positive signs for that. Bodie told that at times, the game is all about opportunities. Once you get the opportunities, you try to do something with this.
