While Gomez may be a better player during the regular season, I don't think its fair to say that he is better in the play-offs. Koivu considerably ups his game during the play-offs, whereas Gomez falters in terms of point production. And while Gomez has two Stanely Cup rings, I think its safe to say that those years he played on a team that was much better than any year of the Habs during Koivu's tenure.
Koivu is also on the decline. Gomez has some good years left in him. He is still in his prime.
