Yes I am for real.

Yes I think Blair Betts can play 3rd line center. He showed it on Saturday vs Leafs.
Sound defensive instincts, face off skills are key and there is no reason why we couldn't have more of those on 3rd instead of the 4th line. Betts is not scoring more
not because he can't, its because he played with like of Orr and Hollweg, Not even
Gomez would score with those guys.

Gomez is wasted as a third line center. Drury is untradeable, and Dubinsky is here to stay. I was advocating that our best trading bait is Gomez.
I am not advocating we trade him, but if we are to get a scorer of Gabby or Kovy's caliber nothing short of Gomez would do.
