Scott Gomez Now PAYS To Play Hockey

    The Alaska Aces announced that they had signed locked out New Jersey Devils center, Scott Gomez to an ECHL contract for the 2004-2005 season on Monday, October 25, 2004.   Gomez turned down more lucrative offers to play in Europe and Russia, opting to play for his hometown team.

    The Aces will pay Gomez a salary of $500 per week -- a mere fraction of his Devils Salary ($1 million for 2003-2004 & contracted for $2.9 million for 2004-2005).   However, that is just part of the financial story.   The ECHL requires NHL players to pay for disability/career-ending insurance -- which Gomez did -- $25,000 for the policy.   Add it up, and that $500 paycheck won't even pay for the insurance policy.
