Hopefully he'll be able to mesh well with Zherdev and Naslund because we definitely need those guys who can score 25-30 goals to do so on this club.
As far as moving Dubinsky to wing I see no need. Fritsche played RW all year last year for Columbus and he will do so for us as well.
Gomez, Drury, Dubinsky and Betts will be our centermen.
And when Anisimov is ready in 2009-10, Drury will move to LW.
you just contradicted yourself. if you have to say "when he plays w/ the right linemates" that instantly means that he is not a true #1 center. a TRUE #1 center will play well no matter who his linemates are. Sakic, Modano, Lecalvalier, Thornton etc.
A true #1 center makes all the players around him better, not the players around him makes him better. Hence Gomez is a good complimentary player, but not a focal point of an offense.
