How do you figure Gomez doesn't put up 70 points?

Dubinsky saw a nice chunk of action with Jagr and Gomez spent half the year essentially playing with one winger and whoever was the plug-in of the week.

He has two legit 25 goal scorers on his flanks now, which is what he got out of Jagr along last season.

As for no one to take any pressure off - I don't know if I'd consider Dubinsky, Dawes, Prucha, Callahan and Drury no ones. If you add one more proven scorer to that mix, I think you've more than you give the Rangers credit for.
