Update: As it turns out, the Florida Panthers haven’t been punishing Scott Gomez for perceived poor play. He’s missed the last three game with a groin injury and is considered day-to-day, according to the Miami Herald’s George Richards.

Gomez, 33, has four points in 15 games this season, but all of them came early on. That goal and three assists came in the first eight contests. Since that last assist on Oct. 15, he went on an eight-game pointless streak.

At least Gomez’s struggles are no longer frequently mocked because of a bloated contract, as the Montreal Canadiens made him one of the league’s first compliance buyouts following the last lockout’s closure.

Tim Thomas and the Panthers hope to get on track against an improving New York Rangers team in Madison Square Garden on Sunday.

    I had no idea Gomez was still in the NHL

    I see NBC Sports likes to feed trolls as the original headline lead you to believe he was a healthy scratch the past 3 games. Pretty much the entire article has been re-written as well.

    I hate this new age sports journalism. You all want to be Sportscenter but in print/Internet/Facebook likes. There is a reason I don’t watch that douchebaggery as well.
