I used to be a huge Gomez defender, and I know if our PP had Markov, Gomez would be better. He and Gomez definitely had chemistry. But let's stop making all these ******** excuses for the guy.

I could live with 55-60pt production. The dude is an offensive void for a 7.5 million dollar player. Anybody they pair with the guy turns cold even from having been on fire.

I want Gomez to succeed here, because unlike a lot of other fans I realize he isn't going anywhere. But **** there really is no defending him this season. I tried to earlier on but you know what there's absolutely no excuse aside from nagging injury, that he's been this awful.
Not that I buy into the concept of primary assists being that much more valuable than secondary ones or even the idea that I should be defending Gomez here, but the majority of his assists (both on the PP and overall) are primary.

Roughly 62% in each category, as it were.
