Shoot the Puck Scotty

The other day it was Jaromir Jagr taking a beating from the press, today Scott Gomez seems to be taking the brunt of the blame for the Rangers lack of offense...

In today's New York Post Jay Greenberg feels Gomez is not earning his millions...

"THE Rangers, who out shot Dallas 41 to 18 yesterday, were rope-a-doped into a 3-2 loss. And one of their biggest dopes was Scott Gomez...

...After averaging 64 points in his seven seasons with the Devils, Gomez is on a pace for 53, not exactly bang for a lot of bucks."

...ouch. Hey Scotty, I bet the New Jersey media was a little bit easier when you were slumping. Welcome to New York.

According to Steven Zipay at Newsday, the media isn't the ones getting frustrated with Gomez as Renney is upset with Scott Gomez' lack of shooting...

Renney's quote:

"That should be an objective of his. Maybe it's a selfish approach. The guy can shoot the puck ... A lot of time he's in position. But he loves to make plays, he wants to defer to somebody else and be an unselfish player, but now I really have to be firm with him and say I want X number of shots."

...I like seeing that Renney is finally getting frustrated with this offense. Although it is ironic that he finally says something about the lack of shooting after the Rangers put 41 shots on Mike Smith.
