Scott Gomez hasn’t scored a goal in 365 days

The last time Scott Gomez scored a goal for the Montreal Canadiens was February 5, 2011 against the New York Rangers. The Habs won that game 2-0 and Gomez’s goal was the game-winner. It was a happy night in Montreal.

Since then, times have been tough. Gomez has played in 51 regular season games and seven playoff games since then and has no goals to show for it and that’s something that’s got some fans outside of Montreal a bit excited. Gomez’s time in Montreal of late has been filled with Bronx cheers, boos, and utter frustration that he can’t be more of an offensive fixture for the Habs.

Making matters worse are Montreal’s struggles in the standings. The Canadiens are currently 28th in the league standings-wise and dead last in the Eastern Conference. Salad days these are not. Gomez snapping out of his goal funk would do a lot for him and while it’s not likely to help Montreal lead their way into the playoffs, at the very least it would take the heat off for a day.

    Remember when Sather gave Drury and Gomez those monster deals that were going to put the Rangers over the top?

    Amazing he was able to sucker the Habs into taking Gomez in a post cap league.

      Those really were two horrible contracts given out by Sather. Neither Gomez or Drury had done something to warrent that kind of money… or even close to that kind of money for that matter.

      Does make one wonder just what the hell Montreal was thinking when they traded for Gomez. If it was a horrible idea to give Gomez $7 million a year expecting him to out perform his previous play, it was a REALLY bad idea to trade for him when he was failing to do just that.

      Of course I don’t think anyone would have expected him to go 51 games without a goal… thats just amazing.

        all Sather did was make Lou Lamerello look like a super genius for not signing him as a RFA….

    Good American player on the wrong team. If I were a player I would never want to play in Montreal. The media, fans, hype, too banners to live up too overly exaggerated expectations every season. bahhhh forget it …. Gomez should find a way out of there and somewhere he can call home.

    Wouldn’t mind seeing him on my Bruins.

      LOL You like him because he’s an American.

      He got paid, has no heart, is lazy and sucks.

      Love to see him and his contract in Boston, too bad Boston isn’t so stupid

      As a Canucks fan, neither would I. This should probably tell you something about what a terrible idea that is.
