i still say he is soft and won't get dirty in front. how many hits has he thrown this season? 2...im serious.
That's a gross exaggeration.

I think everyone knows Gomez is not an overly-physical Power Forward type of player.

But he does throw the body a bit more than...twice. And just as importantly, he takes a ton of hits to make plays.

Does he do it for 82 Regulation Season games? No, he doesn't. And neither does anyone else. No one in the league plays balls-to-the-wall physical every night.

But interesting to note, Gomez threw the body a lot more in the Devils playoff series, last season. And started that way against the Penguins till he got hurt and was hampered the rest of the way.
