This team made its bed with Gomez and they must do everything in their power to get him going before resorting to anything drastic. This includes actually giving him offensive linemates who can spark his productivity as opposed to lining him up with Laps/Moen/insert-plugger-here.

That 6th spot was open to Pouliot but clearly he's still not ready to assume top 6 responsibilities. Eller has the talent but it's also clear that center is his preferred position and we seem to be grooming him to eventually replace Gomez down the line.

I think it's becoming evident that this need cannot be addressed internally and that we need to look elsewhere to fill the void.

So in short, I think the best/realistic option for now is to keep Gomez and get him a winger.
