Gomez is only 30. I doubt he's "washed up and old" just yet.

He's not a 7M$ player... never has been (outside of Sather's mind, that is) but he's still decent. He's not costing us games, as of yet, and should be producing better than he currently is. I don't think there's a much better option out there that would make this situation better/easier.

Plus we're pretty much at the top of the standings with him playing big minutes. Maybe his play, even though he's not producing offense, is helping the team still.

We shouldn't go to something drastic just yet. He was good last year, moreso on PP (regular season AND playoffs) than ES, but still useful. I highly doubt he just "lost" it. You just don't ditch your third scorer in a miracle push in the playoffs because he struggles off the gates.
