Certainly not me.

But Gomez was responsible in getting him a good 60-70 % of his (Shanny's ) points.

Shanahan sucked for most of this season. He was a invisable. If Shanny and Jagr had converted on 50% of the excellent, creative setups by Gomez and Dubinksy; they would have both bagged themselves at least 40 goals each. But they were braindead for 4 months of the season. Gomez only had one less point than Jagr, for his season point totals.

Furthermore, Gomez was routinely moved back and forth between Jagr on the "First Line" and Shanney on the "Second Line".

It wasn't till Dubinsky started going on that 6-8 week tear, that Renney stayed with him and Jagr more consistently. And even then, there were shifts where he moved Gomez up there. And after Dubinsky cooled off, Renney began rotating Gomez with Jagr more often, again.

Not to mention the Power Play time Gomez had with Jagr, which helped Jagr get some points, too.
